Into It. Over It. On The Road

Chicago singer/songwriter Evan Weiss takes his Into It. Over It. solo project on the road come January in support of his new album “Intersections.” Launching the trek in Minneapolis, destinations include Denver, Los Angeles, Baton Rouge and Cleveland.

Weiss didn’t just cut a new album.  The artist, who also plays in the bands Their / They’re / Their and Pet Symmetry, had filmmaker Mitchel Wojcik shoot a mini documentary detailing what went into the long-player.

Having recently toured under the Into It. Over It. moniker with Saves The Day, Weiss has gained accolades from several music media outlets, many of them portraying the Chicago artist as one leading an emo resurgence.

But that’s old news to his long-time fans, many of which feel the world is finally catching up to their hero.  Intersections, which was recorded at Soma Electronic Music Studios and produced by Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine), has racked up the accolades since its release.  Spin said it “honors the tradition of the indie rock oversharers by wrapping cutting lyrics in languid guitar lines and bruised yelps,” and Pitchfork painted Into It. Over It. as taking “cues from early Death Cab For Cutie and The Promise Ring, as verbose, melodically winding acoustic guitars lead while more distorte4d parts add texture.”

Playing mostly clubs, not only is the Into It. Over It. headlining tour a chance for fans to catch Weiss live on stage but the journey is also an opportunity for the uninitiated to discover their next favorite new artist.  Here are the dates:
