Eisley Releases New EP, Plans Spring Mini-Tour, Prepares for LP4

With relatively little fanfare, indie family/sibling band Eisley released a new EP in February, and are following it up with a mini-tour launching in early March, which will quickly criss-cross the United States, and conclude in their home state of Texas on April 1.

The EP, named Deep Space, is a collection of five songs that have become fan faves as the band has performed them for audiences on tour dates. The EP carries sort of a romantic theme, kind of quirky, cute, and almost sappy at times (I’m thinking of “192 Days” as a perfect example). Although it’s not a Valentine’s record, per se, Deep Space was appropriately released on Feb. 14.

The release of this EP seems to be a “cleaning house,” of sorts, as Eisley is reportedly planning to devote much of this year toward recording their fourth full-length studio record (code named LP4). On March 2, the band performed a “dry run” for their upcoming tour at their home stomping grounds, Brewtones Coffee in Tyler, TX, and will “officially” kick off their tour on March 8. Accompanying the band on tour will be the Miami-based indie-rock band Marksmen, along with younger sister Christie Dupree (which is actually Christie and her brother Collin). Concert dates are on the tour poster included with this post (although it might be hard to see them with the small print). Go to the Eisley website for specific tour date and ticket information.

LP4 is still in the planning stages, but the band seems motivated and passionate about creating something impactful. With a new EP, a spring tour and a new full-length soon to be in the works, we Eisely fans have plenty to be excited about.

She soon found her own voice as a singer-songwriter, and eventually began playing her own gigs in the coffee shops. Her personal influences include Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, Ingrid Michaelson and Cat Power, but as an indie musician herself, she has an affinity for any band or artist who pursues creative freedom on the outskirts of the music industry.
