Tennis Touring In Support of Ritual in Repeat This Spring

| March 1, 2015


Tennis is heading out on a North American spring tour in support of their critically-acclaimed album Ritual in Repeat,out now on Communion Records. In conjunction with the new dates, The Fader exclusively premieres Tennis’ new video for “Needle and a Knife.” Watch the video HERE. “The idea for this live video developed out of my obsession with Petra Collins’ photography,” vocalist Alaina Moore told The Fader. “Her work is impertinent, forceful and above all feminine. Forty bucks and several trips to Party City was all I needed to turn my living room into a pink hell which doubled as the perfect setting for a live performance of ‘Needle And A Knife.’” The band begins their headlining tour in their hometown of Denver, CO on April 25. Please see full dates below.

Tennis worked in three seperate cities with three well-known producers on the new album. They returned to Nashville to work with Pat Carney (The Black Keys) on five of the album’s tracks including “Never Work For Free.”  They also worked with Jim Eno (Spoon) in his Austin Studio on “Bad Girls”and lastly Richard Swift (The Shins) in Portland, who collaborated with the band on four songs including “Timothy.”

Tennis is Denver couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. The duo 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 followedCape Dory with Young and Old, which The New Yorker described as “winsome as it is ebullient,” and debuted #1 onBillboard’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. The band performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Conan” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.” Twenty thirteen brought Small Sound EP and the band’s Spring tour with Haim.
