Mandolin Orange reveal new video for ‘Golden Embers’ | Announce 2019 EU/UK headlining tour

Mandolin Orange in 2018 by Kendall Bailey

Today, Mandolin Orange release the official music video for ‘Golden Embers,’ a striking embodiment of both the agony and recovery at the foundation of their new album, Tides Of A Teardrop (out February 1st on Yep Roc Records). Tides Of A Teardrop delves into singer-songwriter Andrew Marlin’s grief following the death of his mother, and the visual paints an intimate, resilient portrait of a father and son coping with despair. As Marlin said, “I wrote this song to my Dad. I think we all try to hide our emotional pain or frustration sometimes, for the benefit of the ones around us.”

As a thesis of the new LP and an encapsulation of Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz’s patiently expressive work, the piece accompanies news of a headlining tour in Europe and the UK in May 2019. Stops will include London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich and more – find all new dates below. Tickets are on sale this Friday, November 30th– following a Music Glue pre-sale today (November 29th).

Mandolin Orange’s grassroots success story continues to grow: they’ve sold out every one of their headlining US performances in 2018, and nearly repeated that accomplishment in Europe. Their sixth studio album, Tides Of A Teardrop, is building on 100 million catalog streams and 1.3 million monthly Spotify listeners, while earning early praise from Rolling Stone Country,  Paste,  Garden & Gun, and NPR Music, who hailed the North Carolinians as a “slow-burning, steadily rising duo [that]exudes gentle elegance.”
