music, art, and road trip insanity from the brooklyn band.

by liza darwin

We've been slightly obsessed with NewVillager ever since we first caught wind of this mythological rock brand-slash-art collective's inexplicably addictive sound a few months ago. So when the guys began their fall tour last month, we asked them to document the madness that happened on the road and report back in the tour diary, which you can check out below. Hint: it involves flat tires, the Andy Warhol Museum, and live performances on train tracks. Oh yes.

Hear more from NewVillager and find out how you can catch them live here.

Our sculpture set up on a gravel road. We made a short film using the van as a dolly.
