Blonde Redhead Announce New Album Sit Down for Dinner, 2023 Tour Dates

Marking their first studio album since 2014

Blonde Redhead Announce New Album Sit Down for Dinner, 2023 Tour Dates

Blonde Redhead are back with Sit Down for Dinner , their first new album since 2014. Out September 29th, the LP features the lead single, “Snowman,” and will be supported by a tour of North America, the UK, and Europe.

Sit Down for Dinner was written over a five-year period in locations spanning from New York City and upstate New York to Milan and Tuscany. The album’s lyrics address the inescapable struggles of adulthood, whether it’s a communication breakdown, wondering which way to turn, or holding onto your dreams.

Band member Kazu Makino found inspiration for the album from a passage in Joan Didion’s 2005 memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking , that resonated with the uncertainty of the early pandemic months and the temporarily lost ritual of eating dinner with her parents far away in Japan: “Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends.”

At the same time, the group — made up of Makino and twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace — has long placed importance on the meal while rehearsing or on tour. “I know a lot of people eat and run, eat in front of their TV, or don’t care about it too much — and that’s OK — but we really do,” explained Simone in a statement. “It’s a moment for us to sit down and have time with each other.”

The lead single, “Snowman,” is evidence of Blonde Redhead’s shared connection, as Amedeo’s voice seamlessly floats over a groove inspired by Brazilian experimental music. As Amedeo explained, the track is about “how it can be a blessing or a curse to be invisible and undetectable, and how it’s something we all feel and desire at times.” Stream it below.

Blonde Redhead Announce Winter Tour Including European and UK Dates in Support of Upcoming LP

' src=

Blonde Redhead is back announcing their first album in 9 years will be out later this year. The band has announced their 10 th studio LP Sit Down For Dinner will be out 29 th September via section1 and also revealed an extensive winter tour in support of the album including dates in Europe and the UK.

The band has also shared the first track from the album. Listen below to the dreamy “ Snowman ”:

The trio will begin touring their new album in the States this October and begin their 14-date European leg in mid-November starting with Genève. The band will then close the tour with 3 dates in the UK playing in Leeds, Bristol, and London.

Keeping with the theme of the album, the band will also be hosting special dinners at select restaurants in Paris, London, New York and Los Angeles in September, offering fans chance to spend some time with the band over a meal. Tickets are available through the exclusive album bundle, including a signed vinyl, a limited edition section1 magazine, and dinner with the band. For tickets and more information see here .

Sit Down For Dinner was a product of lockdown written and recorded over a five-year period. In 2020, lead singer Kazu Makino reading a passage from Joan Didion’s 2005 memoir, ‘The Year of Magical Thinking’, was struck by Didion’s reflections on her devastating experience of witnessing her husband’s sudden death at the dinner table. Makino thought of her own lost ritual of congregating for dinner with family. The line “ You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends ” eventually inspired the album’s title.

For the Pace brothers, family dinners also hold a cultural weight. “ I know a lot of people eat and run, eat in front of their TV, or don’t care about it too much—and that’s OK—but we really do ,” says Simone. “ It’s a moment for us to sit down and have time with each other. ” Pre-save the album here .

See below for Sit Down For Dinner ’s tracklist:

  • Kiss Her Kiss Her
  • Melody Experiment
  • Rest of Her Life
  • Sit Down for Dinner Pt 1
  • Sit Down for Dinner Pt 2
  • I Thought You Should Know

Alt-rock trio Blonde Redhead first formed in New York in 1993 when Italian twin brothers Amedeo and Simone Pace met Japanese art student Kazu Makino by chance in an Italian restaurant. The band has dipped their toes in noise rock, dream pop, shoegaze, and art rock throughout its discography. They’ve cultivated a loyal following and gained a resurge in popularity after the closing track to 2000’s Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons , “ For the Damaged Coda ”, was used in a Rick and Morty episode and became a viral meme.

Listen to “For the Damaged Coda” below:

Blonde Redhead

+ andrew hung.

“Life changes fast,” Joan Didion once wrote. “Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends.”

In the spring of 2020, Blonde Redhead singer and multi-instrumentalist Kazu Makino encountered this passage from Didion’s 2005 memoir of grief, The Year of Magical Thinking, in which the author reflected on the devastating experience of witnessing her husband’s sudden death at the dinner table. Amid the profound uncertainty of those early pandemic months, Makino was thinking of her own parents far away in Japan; the then-lost ritual of congregating for dinner with family; and the heavy, omnipresent feeling that life could change in the instant for any of us.

With plainspoken language and incandescent melodies, Makino narrated these feelings on a pair of songs, “Sit Down for Dinner Pt I” and “Sit Down for Dinner Pt II,” which helped title the tenth full-length from Blonde Redhead. “Sit Down to Dinner Pt II” thematically transcends time: “It’s sort of about death, but the music is so alive and groovy,” Makino says. Yet, the title Sit Down for Dinner has a separate resonance for the Italian members of Blonde Redhead, the Milan-born twin brothers Amedeo Pace (singer / multi-instrumentalist) and Simone Pace (drummer). “Culturally, dinner is important to us,” Simone says of the nonnegotiable family ritual. “It’s a moment for us to sit down and have time with each other. We grew up that way. I know a lot of people eat and run, eat in front of their TV, or don’t care about it too much—and that’s OK—but we really do.” Dinner has long been a sacred ritual for Blonde Redhead as a band as well; when they’re on tour or rehearsing, they always share a meal, no matter what.

Owing to that sense of persistent togetherness, the immersive, meticulously-crafted Sit Down for Dinner is a testament to the unique internal logic Blonde Redhead have refined over their three-decade existence. Formed in the 1993 New York indie underground, Blonde Redhead quickly found a place on Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley’s label, Smells Like, before releasing beloved records on Touch & Go and 4AD that traced an arc from angular indie-rock to cosmopolitan art pop. The trio might have been a quintessential ’90s band, if not for the fact that they continuously kept going, growing, never confined to any era but the present.

On Sit Down for Dinner, the understated yet visceral melodies charging each song create a foil to lyrics about the inescapable struggles of adulthood: communication breakdown in enduring relationships, wondering which way to turn, holding onto your dreams. Going into the record, Makino had recently spent time living on a tiny Italian island and pursuing solo music—an experience that instilled in her new confidence to experiment and have fun. She returned to New York as the world was locking down, quarantining with Amedeo and his partner upstate, where they focused on the music in seclusion. Immaculately structured, imbued with sensitivity, clarity, and resolve, Sit Down for Dinner was ultimately written and recorded over a five-year period spanning New York City, upstate, Milan and Tuscany.

The luminous groove and chord progression of “Snowman,” sung by Amedeo, is one of many Blonde Redhead songs inspired by the attitude and breezinessof Brazilian experimental music; a brilliant turn of phrase melts its titular snowman into simply a man, struggling to express himself: “Do you feel alive or do you only fall? So like a no man, that you are.” Makino wrote “Rest of Her Life” as an elegy for her cherished late horse, Harry, who she considered “almost like my soulmate” (and whose loss in 2020 moved her to read The Year of Magical Thinking). The song’s vocal layers were inspired by the Swingle Singers’ a capella renditions of Bach.

The subtly brooding “If” embodies the existential unease of middle age, struggling to orient oneself and locate where, and who, are home. The widescreen introspection of “I Thought You Should Know” confronts the experience of being misunderstood, or unheard, by those closest to you. On “Kiss Her Kiss Her,” when Makino sings, “Even stars are closer,” the lyric references a short story in Khul-Khaal, by the Arabic writer Nayra Atiya, in which a woman hopes to divorce her husband, and is told “even the stars are closer” than such a possibility. “It’s about someone with a bold, entirely far-fetched dream, where you know it will end in tears, but you want to be supportive anyway.”

Elsewhere, the songs of Sit Down for Dinner find ways forward in pure experimentation. “Melody Experiment” received its title when Makino “unlocked the song with the melody” in a moment of serendipity. “I was singing a little bit off, in a bluesy way, and I was so fascinated,” she says. “It feels quite new, like something I haven’t done before.” With its stacked backing vocals, “Before” was written with children’s voices in mind, narrated from the perspective of a kid who thinks they know it all. “Children have incredible abilities,” Makino says. “They have a confidence that is so whole, they can see through you a little.” Amid the windswept melodies and arrestingly bittersweet tone of “Not for Me,” Amedeo gave himself the challenge of vulnerability, writing while Makino was in Italy, longing for that kind of freedom. “You ran with the flowers/And further than water/And further than our walls,” he sings. “Move to the side, move to the light, move to a place that no one can find.” 

Releasing Sit Down for Dinner in its 30th year, Blonde Redhead’s perseverance partially came in realizing that the process of making the record should necessarily be fun. “Usually I agonize and it’s painful for me to write music, but on this one, I didn’t suffer as much,” says Makino. “I wanted to put my foot down and say: we can have a nice time together. The record sounds quite optimistic.” Amedeo adds, “We do really respond to each other. We depend on each other for inspiration. Kazu completes what I start; Simone completes both with rhythm.” 

Perhaps this gives the title Sit Down for Dinner yet another layer, as the music, fittingly, is a pleasure, with the ease of new conversation among familiar friends. Crucial to that equation are Blonde Redhead’s innate harmonic sensibilities, which Makino calls the core of the band. “We have a language we have kept,” she adds. “We try to change rhythms, concepts, and sounds. But that harmonic sensibility has stayed the same. It hits the same part of your heart.”

Blonde Redhead announce their return with new album ‘ Sit Down For Dinner ’

Blonde Redhead , News , Listen

Blonde Redhead have announced details of their first studio album in nine years. ‘Sit Down For Dinner’ will be released 29th September via section1. The band have also shared new song ‘Snowman’ as a first taste of the album.

Written over a five year period, ‘Sit Down For Dinner’ is partially inspired by a passage from Joan Didion’s ‘The Year of Magical Thinking’, in which Didion witnessed her husband’s death at the dinner table. This prompted band member Kazu Makino to reflect on her own dinner rituals with her family in Japan, now lost due to the pandemic. One line from these reflections formed the basis of the album title: “Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends.”

Dinner - the meal, obv - also held similar cultural importance for the Pace brothers: “I know a lot of people eat and run, eat in front of their TV, or don’t care about it too much—and that’s OK—but we really do,” says Simone. “It’s a moment for us to sit down and have time with each other.”

Their new track ‘Snowman’ was reportedly inspired by the Swingle Sister’s acapella renditions of Bach. Sung by bandmember Amedeo Pace, the track was also inspired by Brazilian experimental music: “I got inspired to write a song that only had two chords and a melody that would live and float between them,” says Amedeo. “‘Snowman’ is about how it can be a blessing or a curse to be invisible and undetectable, and how it’s something we all feel and desire at times.”

Check out the tracklisting below.
