Tennis continues their extensive North American tour in celebration of their fourth full-length album, Yours Conditionally, with a run of dates supporting The Shins this spring/summer. The shows come on the heels of the group’s performance at Coachella. The band is also touring the southeastern U.S. with Spoon this spring as well as joiningFather John Misty in Minneapolis in August; see below for a complete list of dates. In addition to the new shows, the track “My Emotions Are Blinding” is the Song of the Week at Los Angeles’ ALT 98.7 this week.
 
Yours Conditionally—out now on Mutually Detrimental via Thirty Tigers and available at all record stores as well as via iTunes and Spotify.
 
The new record was composed both on land and at sea during a five-month sailing trip through the Sea of Cortez. Upon returning, Tennis’ husband-and-wife team of Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore self-produced the record in a small cabin in Fraser, CO. It was mixed by Spoon’s Jim Eno at Public HiFi.
 
Now based in Denver, Moore and Riley began writing music together as a way to document the history of their time living aboard a sailboat. The result was their first release, Cape Dory. Moore and Riley followed Cape Dory with Young and Old, whichThe New Yorker described as “winsome as it is ebullient” and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart and #1 on CMJ Top 200, where it remained for three straight weeks. The album also debuted on Soundscan’s “New Artist Chart” at #1, remaining there for nine consecutive weeks. Their newest record comes on the heels of the group’s most recent release, 2014’s Ritual in Repeat. The band has performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Conan” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.”
