Porches shares new video "Back3School"; announces 2022 international tour

Praise for Porches & the songs on All Day Gentle Hold ! :
"blissed-out and beautiful; Aaron Maine is a perfect translator of an emotional rush" - PAPER
"one of their most electric-sounding singles to date." - PASTE
"one of Maine’s most straightforward rock-focused tracks in recent memory" - UPROXX
"It’s a breezy blast of dry drums and acoustic guitars with a chorus that sucks you in like a vortex." - Stereogum
"'Okay' shines with the gloss of '90s adult contemporary radio, but there's something delightfully bent about its particular luster." - The FADER
“unforgettable” - FLOOD

This Friday October 8Aaron Maine aka Porches will release his fifth album, the exuberant and audacious All Day Gentle Hold !. As a final peek at what’s to come, today Maine has shared album track “Back3School”—an ecstatic, spun-out joyride that swirls with careening synths and a pummeling kickdrum that drives the song to a crashing conclusion. “I got a little sun on my vacation / I'm not in a rush I got patience / I don’t know what it does but I'm taking some / I'm going back to school.”

Maine on “Back3School”: “This song is a mystery to me, impending doom mixed with total bliss . The ‘back to school’ trope, but with an underlying anxiety that something might be terribly wrong, or maybe everything is just fine.” Watch the video below, and stream the track here.

Also announced today is a 2022 international tour which will kick off its North American leg in Montreal on March 21st, wrapping up in Philadelphia on April 22nd before heading to Europe for a string of dates.  Find the full dates below. Tickets will be on sale this Friday, October 8th at 10am local, available here: https://porchesmusic.com/
