Tilly and the Wall perform on premier episode of 90210!

Tilly and the Wall will be performing on the premiere episode of the newly revamped 90210, which airs on September 2nd on The CW. The band will be performing their song “Pot Kettle Black” from their incredible album with no title, simply called o due to the frame on its cover, which is available now!

In addition to their appearance on 90210, where the band performs at a character’s not-so-sweet sixteen, Tilly and the Wall also performed in a music video acquired by Sesame Street to use in their upcoming 39th season, which starts this fall.  The band recorded their own version of the ABC song, and the result is nothing short of magical.

Lastly, Tilly and the Wall will be hitting the road for select shows this September with Brazil’s CSS.  The two bands, both of whom are known for their amazing live performances, have toured together many times in Europe, and will no doubt create a show that is not to be missed.

Tilly and the Wall’s “o” is in stores today!

It is with much excitement that we present Tilly & the Wall’s newest album simply entitled….well, it doesn’t have a title. The album cover is serving as its title: it’s a frame in which artwork will be placed. The Tillies are asking everyone in their community to contribute artwork for the album’s cover, and will have limited edition runs of handmade prints available by different artists that will act as the album’s cover.

O details the mixing of the personal and the organic world — songs on the record frequently feature grass, flowers, blood, trees, snow, water, dust, sand, trash, electricity and gardens, all tied up with loss, love, need and exploration.

Produced by the acclaimed Mike Mogis, O is Tilly and the Wall’s most cohesive, sonically experimental album yet. In addition to building a tack piano for certain songs, the band toyed with percussion much more than their previous efforts, recording Jamie’s taps through a variety of different amplifiers and floors to give each song its own distinct rhythm. With its massive dose of high energy, hip-shaking attitude, it’s the sort of album that reminds you why you fell for Tilly and the Wall in the first place.

Tilly’s most recent single, “Beat Control” is now available through iTunes (along with album track “Cacophony), and as a limited-edition seven-inch through our online store.

O will hit stores and all digital retailers on June 17.

Stream both Cacophony and Beat Control below.
