Seattle's Ivan & Alyosha are excited to join the Dualtone Music Group family for the release of their much anticipated debut full-length album All The Times We Had on February 26th, 2013.
The album will be released as a joint venture between Missing Piece Records and Dualtone Music Group.
With this move Ivan & Alyosha join a roster that includes The Lumineers, Shovels & Rope, and Brett Dennen among other talented artists.
This October they will take to the road on a seventeen date tour across the country, hitting cities from east to west including dates in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Denver and Minneapolis among many others.
All The Times We Had was co-produced by engineer Chad Copelin and mixed by Jesse Lauter (The Low Anthem, Bobby Long).
The record is the Seattle four piece's follow up to their well received 2011 EP Fathers Be Kind, which won them recognition and praise from the likes of American Songwriter, Relix (On The Verge Artist), Paste, and NPR's "All Things Considered" and "Tiny Desk" series.
The results are an 11-song album that effortlessly captures the warmth and immediacy of Ivan & Alyosha's live performances, lending added resonance to such lyrically compelling, melodically arresting tunes as "Be Your Man," "Running for Cover," "Don't Wanna Die Anymore," "The Fold" and the album's bittersweetly reflective title track.
Ivan & Alyosha hit the road this fall to share new material with fans across the country as they gear up for what will surely be a momentous year for them in 2013. A list of upcoming tour dates can be found below.
