North American tour kicks off next month...

Pinegrove have signed to Rough Trade and shared new single 'Moment'.

The American indie group's literate songwriting made them cult heroes, releasing three albums to critical acclaim.

Allegations of "sexual coercion" against singer Evan Stephens Hall caused Pinegrove to call a hiatus, emerging after 12 months with a flurry of live shows on both sides of the Atlantic.

Pinegrove went into the studio with a new line up, and have just signed a deal with Rough Trade.

The esteemed UK indie label have shared new single 'Moment', explaining that they are "excited to embark on this musical journey together..."

Pinegrove’s singer/songwriter/guitarist Evan Stephens Hall says of this new song:

“‘Moment’ for me was a way of thinking about gratitude in the context of chaos or tedium. This last stanza says directly what i say more obliquely in the verses, zeroing in after a meandering route”:

I’m in this moment
& i can’t see past it
I’m in this disaster
I’m in this traffic
& it keeps on going
but it keeps me asking
what’s in this moment?
