    Hinds are the latest band to delay the release of their new album because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally slated for April 3rd, The Prettiest Curse is now set to arrive on June 5th via Mom + Pop. In a coinciding move, the Madrid indie outfit has also rescheduled their tour dates behind the LP.

    The band issued a statement regarding the postponements, writing,

    “we all need music now more than ever, and we were so excited to release our album next month and share it with you! but right now, things are a bit scary in spain and the coronavirus is something that is affecting a lot of our loved ones, so for right now we think all of our focus should be on staying safe and staying home, not promoting a new album.”

    The Prettiest Curse follows 2018’s I Don’t Run and has been previewed with the teaser tracks “Riding Solo”, “Good Bad Times”, and “Come Back and Love Me<3”.

    Hinds aren’t the only ones pushing back their release date, and with the dip in album sales and streaming over the last week it’s not hard to see why. HAIM, Willie Nelson, DMA’s, and Jarv Is… have all shifted their albums’ releases, while countless festivals and tours have been postponed or canceled.

    As for Hinds’ tour, they’ve pushed everything on their docket back to September and November. A handful of US shows have also been added in place of stops that couldn’t be rescheduled. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates. Find their updated itinerary below, and get tickets here.
