Cigarettes After Sex have shared a brand new standalone single entitled ‘Crush’ to celebrate the one year anniversary of their self-titled debut LP. ‘Crush’ was written and recorded alongside the tracks on debut album but has been kept under wraps until now.

Stream / Share ‘Crush' by Cigarettes After Sex via YouTube / Spotify.

This Autumn, the band will play a limited run of live dates with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, including Barclays Center in Brooklyn and The Forum in LA. They will also perform alongside The National, Jason Isbell and more at Forrest Hills Stadium in late September. These dates follow the band’s recent sold-out headline show at Brixton Academy in London and a busy summer of European festivals. Full International tour listings below.

‘Cigarettes After Sex’, the self-titled debut LP is out now on Partisan Records.

"The airy melody of the love song is soft yet strong, stringing together the messages of pain and memories of past relationships. With each lyric, the soft-spoken music group brings you back to that first moment of falling in love and the aftermath that follows behind it." - Billboard

"Tender like your lover's hand wrapped around your ankle as he naps next to you on the couch; sad like that last fuck when you both know it's over; smutty because the private language between two is a code that keeps outsiders in the dark." - Noisey

"Cigarettes After Sex's ambient single "K." feels almost like a slowed down and smeared '80s synth-pop cut." - NPR (Listeners’ Pick for Favorite New Artists of 2017)    

"Melancholic, androgynous pop noir set in smoke-filled darkness" - Rolling Stone

"Cigarettes After Sex are the calm we all need right now...a sonic swirl of dopamine and serotonin posing as a four-piece band." - Paste Magazine

 "'K.' is a bleary, understated guitar reverie that (gently) impacts like a liquid mix of the Clientele and Red House Painters." - Stereogum

"Hypnotic Brooklyn based Cigarettes After Sex are moody as anything. Attend this show with your festival crush and the smooches will happen almost instantly." - NME
