The Mother Hips announce new Fall 2009 & Winter 2010 dates

As the buzz around Pacific Dust, the brand new release from The Mother Hips, continues to build and the great reviews pour in, The Hips announce additional fall 2009 tour dates and their early 2010 winter tour schedule. The Bay Area psych-rockers continue to tour nationally behind Pacific Dust, their 11-song studio album, which reached # 82 on Billboards Heatseekers chart this week. After a recent return from the Northwest and a series of warm-up festival plays over the summer (including their own "Hipnic" Festival in Big Sur, CA) The Hips are excited to bring Pacific Dust and their "California-soul" to fans around North America.

The critically acclaimed Pacific Dust, the band's seventh studio album, was recorded at Mission Bells Studios in San Francisco with producer/engineer David Simon-Baker (Little Wings, Jackie Greene, Chris Velan, ALO).

The Mother Hips are on tour this fall/winter in support of Pacific Dust.  The complete list of currently confirmed tour dates is as follows:

November 17-18 Joe's Pub @ The Public Theater New York NY

Additional dates to be announced.

The Mother Hips have flown under the radar as true indie music pioneers for almost two decades.  With the release of their new album, California's unsung psych-pop heroes tell their story. Hailed by critics for their "rootsy mix of 70s rock and power pop" (pitchfork.com) and for their unflinching ability to "sing it sweet and play it dirty" (New Yorker), on Pacific Dust The Hips' signature sound rings more genuine and relevant than ever before.


The Hips - led by co-founders Tim Bluhm (vocals/guitar) and Greg Loiacono (guitar/vocals) - have been playing music for nearly 18 years, and in the process, have had the luxury of exploring and refining their craft. For the band's seventh full-length studio album, The Mother Hips have never been more primed to share their well-traveled tales - the long days and nights on the road, the gritty politics, the smart inward reflections and man, the music! - all delivered with a most appealing balance of Americana storytelling and their California-burnished rock.
