Blake Sennett takes his Elected on U.S. tour


Last month, our own Dan Caffrey spoke with Blake Sennett, who in addition to relating Rilo Kiley to a corpse in a morgue, he stressed how his new music could have possibly healed some wounds. Now, he’s ready to take those therapeutic melodies on the road, as he and The Elected will patrol across North America this summer.

In support of their latest effort, Bury Me In My Rings, due out May 17th via Vagrant Records, The Elected will hit up a variety of markets. Outside previously announced dates in both NYC and L.A., the band will be visiting the likes of Phoenix, Austin, Chapel Hill, D.C., Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, etc. What’s more, these are all intimate venues – have you been to Schubas or Emo’s? – which should make for a pleasant summer evening.

If you’re interested to hear what Sennett’s been up to, head on over to, where they’ll be streaming Bury Me In My Rings in full starting today.
