From quality Chicago label Tandem Shop comes Many Places, the sensitive singer-songwriter project of Kevin Rieg (Hidden Mitten, Rabbit Red). The act is set to release its forthcoming debut full length, Another Oath, on May 8th. But before then, Rieg will be joined by his band, comprised of Honest Engines‘ Matt Hennessey, Nick Godden, and Marcus Maloney, for a live show this week Tuesday, April 24th, at Subterranean (tix). The album goes up for pre-order on May 8th, with a proper release May 29th, but a preview cut from that effort is available for streaming or download now. Check out the shuffling and sorrowful “Helmut Hug” below, and catch Many Places live Tuesday night at SubT, or June 10th at The Whistler for the Another Oath record release show. And listen for the group on an upcoming episode of the CVU podcast, posting just before the Whistler show.
