NEWS: Defeater new album cover art +European and Australian tour

Defeater’s second full-length album, Empty Days & Sleepless Nights, is set for release on March 8th from Bridge Nine Records and here’s the cover art:
Empty Days & Sleepless Nights traces back to the family setting from Travels, but focuses on the older of the two sons, with the events unfolding through the older sibling’s eyes.  ED&SL features fourteen tracks: ten of the heaviest and most musically intricate songs Defeater has written to date and four acoustic songs that sound a lot like Rocky Votolato and Ryan Adams.
Check out two songs off of Empty Days & Sleepless Nights by pre-ordering the Dear Father EP, which features one acoustic track (“I Don’t Mind”) and one heavy track (“Dear Father”) from the album now on B9Store.com. This album teaser hits streets on February 8th while the ED&SL full length will be available everywhere on March 8th, 2011. Additionally, you can hear the song “Dear Father” featured in the most recent podcast from First World Problems (listen here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/first-world-problems/id394647425?ign-mpt=uo%3D4).
Defeater will tour Europe in February and March with Carpathian and will be trekking over to Australia as well, with Aussie natives Miles Away:
