The tremendous intra-band camaraderie of the Sargent House roster continues as Good Old War and Cast Spells release a split EP together and tour sharing band members in December. Good Old War will serve as the backing band to Dave Davison's solo outfit Cast Spells on these dates (please see full dates below). And to further the family love, Good Old War also contribute vocal harmonies to the forthcoming new album by Davison's other band, Maps & Atlases.
In support of this tour, Sargent House will release a 4-song EP comprised of two new tracks by each act. This is the first new music from Good Old War since release of its debut album Only Way to be Alone (Sargent House - stream it HERE) in 2008, which has kept the band in a whirlwind of touring (including dates with RX Bandits, The Honorary Title , Heartless Bastards and Gaslight Anthem) and a multitude of radio appearances. Cast Spells released its debut 6-song EP, Bright Works and Baton (Sargent House - stream it HERE) in August 2009, and will head overseas for a tour in March 2010 with another Dave Davison project called Hey Tonal.
In other Good Old War news, the trio will cap off the year with west coast performances with songwriter Anthony Green, playing both as his backing band as well as their own full set. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.
