Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Announces Fall Tour

 "While the trio have spent over a decade honing their blend of '90s power-pop and '60s-inspired harmonies, this latest feels especially vibrant....overflowing with a teen-y angst and indecision that still feels utterly raw. Maybe they should fly 5,000 miles across the world for every record." - Consequence of Sound
Missouri-based indie-pop trio Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin has released new single, 'Harrison Ford,' with SPIN. The lead track off their forthcoming album, Fly By Wire, out September 17th on Polyvinyl, it follows first single 'Nightwater Girlfriend,' and the album will be available on CD/Digital, 180-gram coke bottle clear vinyl with a gatefold jacket and collage-style pull-out poster, a special limited edition red/white vinyl exclusively for mail-order, and red cassette tape. Pre-order link is here. The band is also pleased to announce a fall tour that will kick off in Columbia, MO in October and take them to the east coast. They will follow this run with a tour throughout the western half of the US in November.

For this new album,
the members of SSLYBY returned to the attic where they made their debut full-length Broom, but first they took a 5000 mile detour. After the Boris Yeltsin Foundation in Yekaterinburg, Russia extended an invitation to the band, Phil Dickey, Will Knauer, and Jonathan James spent a whirlwind six days in their namesake's home country this past January: meeting with Yeltsin's close friends and personal translator (who gifted them seven bottles of expensive Russian vodka) and performing at an elementary school after the U.S. consulate named them cultural ambassadors for a day. The trip concluded with a set at Old Nu Rock, making SSLYBY the first American group to play at Russia's largest winter rock festival. The band is releasing a documentary about their life-changing trip this summer, called Discussions With Russians. Watch the trailer here.
