The Postelles Launches ‘Hold On’ Video Via New York Magazine’s “Vulture” And Announce Record Release Tour


New York Magazine’s “Vulture” recently premiered The Postelles’ latest acoustic, roadside video “Hold On.” It features front man Daniel Balk, chilling in a deli parking lot in Tennessee, serenading a free way. It is a raw, emotional release from this boppy, swing-dancing band, something a little different from them. The Postelles will be releasing their self-titled debut album, co-produced by The Strokes very own Albert Hammond Jr., and kicking off their own tour on June 7th. The band will start with a two-night stay at New York’s Mercury Lounge. The Ambassadors will be supporting the June 7th Mercury Lounge show as well as the Philadelphia and Washington, DC shows. PanAm will be opening for The Postelles’ Los Angeles show June 28th.
