Rock band Sheer Mag is making a return, now under the label of Third Man Records. The group has publicized their comeback by unveiling a tour plan and introducing their fresh track, “All Lined Up”, accompanied by a Matt Palmer-directed music video. The video encapsulates the atmosphere of late-night hangouts at a low-key bar, complete with dim lighting, staple drinks, and continual rounds of pool.
The collaboration with Third Man Records came to fruition after Sheer Mag approached them. Ben Blackwell of Third Man, familiar with the band from their early days and admirer of their independent, DIY spirit, was thrilled when they suggested a partnership. He expressed his disbelief, excitement, and humility at the opportunity, eagerly anticipating the fun journey ahead. Third Man Records will also be re-releasing Sheer Mag’s previous work.
Sheer Mag is set to embark on a tour that will extend into the autumn months. The North American journey will start on August 15 in Winooski, Vermont, and conclude on December 1 in the band’s birthplace, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The full schedule of their tour dates can be found below.
The band’s last album, “A Distant Call,” was released in 2019. Following that, Sheer Mag had been relatively low-key, save for a shout-out from Bernie Sanders in a 2019 campaign rally and their song “Crushed Velvet” featured in Hulu’s movie “The Ultimate Playlist of Noise” in 2021.
Newsound included “A Distant Call” in their “Best Rock Albums of 2019” list.
