Longtime members of the Athens, Ga. music scene, Modern Skirts have kept some pretty weighty company along the way. With fellow Athens supporters like Michael Stipe and Mike Mills in their corner the group has had a whirlwind past couple of years, which includes an opening slot for REM in Europe. The band also just put out their new disc, All Of Us In Our Night, which was co-produced by Mills of REM and David Lowery of Cracker. The new album showcases the group's smooth laid back rock/pop style and on point harmonies led by the track, "Soft Pedals."
Modern Skirts are currently wrapping up their busy tour schedule within the next few weeks, which includes local stops this weekend in NYC, and Brooklyn, check the full dates below.
