City Extension are streaming their latest full-length
Deliverance today in full via Paste.  
The album is officially out March 10th, 2015 via Anchor & Hope Records and
the band departs on a six week tour this week in support of the new record (now
available for pre-order).  Three years after the release of their critically
acclaimed sophomore album Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger,
River City Extension is clearly stronger than ever on Deliverance, with
a slimmed down lineup and a sound and fierce conviction that show them writing
and playing at their peak.

City Extension has also announced a full U.S. headlining tour, with Air
Traffic Controller for support, starting in March and continuing well into
April, including dates at SXSW (all confirmed dates below).

is comprised of ten tracks that successfully create a succinct,
effortlessly executed indie rock opus reminiscent of Tom Petty, Paul Simon,
Girls and Dirty Projectors. While guitarist/vocalist Joe Michelini originally
served as the core of River City Extension, Deliverance sees Michelini
and long-time collaborators John Muccino (guitars/vocals/strings) and Patrick
O’Brien (keyboards, vocals) expanding into a full band with the addition of Josh
Gilman (bass).

Michelini was heavily influenced by Ayn Rand during the
writing of Deliverance.  Much of the record was informed by her
thoughts on morality and productive work, as Michelini applied these to his
search for identity within the music industry and as an artist. The songs weigh
the importance of staying true to oneself within the complexities of the modern
world.  Deliverance was produced, engineered and mixed by Pat Noon over
14 days in a vacant ski-lodge in the Poconos.

River City Extension formed
in 2007, and have released two full-lengths and numerous EPs and splits
including a 2011 split with Kevin Devine. Paste named the band a “Band to
Watch” in 2010, and NPR has hailed the band’s “serious ambition”. The
group has toured the country extensively, performing everywhere from the Newport
Folk Festival to Bonnaroo to Austin City Limits.
