Laura Stevenson

Unleashes “Claustrophobe” w/ Stereogum Today!

National Fall Tour Kicks Off 10/14 In D.C.

4th Studio Album Cocksure Produced By
Jeff Rosenstock of Bomb The Music Industry!
Out Oct. 30 via Don Giovanni Records

“Torch Song,” …  builds itself around cracked guitar lines and Stevenson’s own bitter vocalizations, one of the more affecting forces currently going in rock’n’roll.” SPIN

“ …a kind of mesmerizing, fierce folk-rock that’s singularly devastating” Stereogum

“While the inward jabs are cutting, Stevenson’s true gift is taking this melancholy and making it sound upbeat and fun. She is the undisputed champion of writing feel-good feel-bad songs … all hail the master, whether she’ll admit it or not.” VICE’s Noisey

Laura Stevenson shows her emboldened rock and roll side on Cocksure, slated for release October 30th via Don Giovanni Records. Produced by long-time friend and collaborator Jeff Rosenstock of Bomb The Music Industry!, it is an album of spontaneity, biting guitar licks and irresistible melody. Hitting that 90’s-alt-rock-riot-grrrl sweet spot, “Claustrophobe” is a moody, anthemic track that builds to an epic breakdown.

Joined by musicians Mike Campbell, Alex Billig, Peter Naddeo and Samantha Niss,Cocksure represents a new era for the songwriter. It was mostly recorded live, resulting in a raw, spontaneous feeling that makes the album an accumulation of Stevenson’s journey, on and off the stage. After more than a year of national and worldwide touring alongside reputable acts including Against Me!, The Go-Go’s, Cursive’s Tim Kasher andThe Gaslight Anthem, Laura Stevenson will kick off a national fall tour on October 14 in DC. Be sure to catch her performing live in a city near you!
