Poliça have unveiled their new single “Rotting” and announced a 2022 North American tour.
The ominous, haunting single is the Minneapolis-based quintet’s first new release since their 2020 album When We Stay Alive, with lead singer Channy Leaneagh’s vocals twisting and distorting over her bandmates’ eerie production. Take a listen below.
The band is also headed out on a North American headlining tour beginning April 30th with an appearance at the Midwest Music Fest in Winona, Minnesota. From there, they’ll hit major cities like Chicago, Toronto, Brooklyn, and Los Angeles before wrapping things up with an August 26th show at Turner Hall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Get tickets here.
Back in 2020, Leaneagh sat down with Kyle Meredith for an interview about When We Stay Alive, in which she reflected on the 10 ft. fall that left her temporarily paralyzed and how the accident affected both her life and songwriting.
