Midlake will be performing at Denver’s Bluebird Theatre on 6/21 as part of their US headline tour in support of their new album, For The Sake of Bethel Woods. Produced, engineered, and mixed by Grammy Award-winner John Congleton, the album marks Midlake’s 5th LP, an album of immersive warmth and mystery from a landmark band once feared lost by fans.

Produced, engineered, and mixed by GRAMMY® Award-winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, Explosions in the Sky, Sharon Van Etten) at Elmwood Recording Studio in Dallas, TX, For The Sake Of Bethel Woods marks Midlake’s first time recording with an outside producer. The result is an album of immersive warmth and mystery from a landmark band once feared lost by fans, but here revivified with freshness and constancy of intent. A desire to commune with the past and connect with the present, lived experience asserts itself throughout songs such as “Bethel Woods” – named of course for the site of 1969’s original 37-acre Woodstock festival field – and the sky-scraping space-rock of “Exile.” That same resonant spirit is further embodied by the instantly memorable cover art, designed by pro skateboarder/filmmaker/visual artist Brian Lotti and featuring a striking photo of keyboardist/flautist Jesse Chandler’s father, who tragically passed away in 2018.

For The Sake Of Bethel Woods was heralded with the release of the official music video for the mesmerizing song “Bethel Woods.” The video was directed by filmmaker Brantley Gutierrez (Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Diplo) and stars acclaimed actor Michael Peña (The Shield, Narcos, Ant-Man and the Wasp). The band has also shared live performance videos for “Bethel Woods” as well as the song “Meanwhile…”

The captivating performances – filmed at Dallas, TX’s Modern Electric Sound Recorders by director Rett Rogers (Nicole Atkins, Nathaniel Rateliff) and co-director Barbara FG – are part of a series of exclusive live sessions, “Meanwhile In Texas.”
