Boston’s Palehound, lead by fierce vocalist and prolific creative force Ellen Kempner, has announced the sophomore album "A Place I'll Always Go", to be released June 16 on Polyvinyl Record Co. The collection is a frank look at love and loss, cushioned by indelible hooks and gently propulsive, fuzzed-out rock. As Kempner explains, "A lot of it is about loss and learning how to let yourself evolve past the pain and the weird guilt that comes along with grief."

Since forming in 2014, Palehound—Kempner, drummer Jesse Weiss (Spook The Herd), and new bassist Larz Brogan—have taken their plainspoken, technique-heavy indie rock from the basements of Boston to festivals around the world. A Place I'll Always Go builds on the promise of Palehound's critically acclaimed 2015 album Dry Food with songs that breathe Kempner’s evolved maturity, while asserting her core artistic fire.

A Place I'll Always Go, which channels feelings of anxiety — heart-racing moments both exhilarating and crushing — into songs that feel well-worn and comforting. The album was recorded at Brooklyn’s Thump Studios with the assistance of Gabe Wax, who also recorded Dry Food.

"Kempner has a knack for odd little about-turns that elevate Dry Food above the usual plainspoken acoustic indie fare... a discomfiting, unflinching debut." – Pitchfork, 8.0

“antsy and ambivalently sexy” – Rolling Stone, 4-star review

“… a dynamic new artist capable of embodying wide-eyed empathy and the all-consuming yearn of youth, while still demonstrating wisdom beyond her years. The most exciting part of all: Palehound is only beginning." – NPR, First Listen

“The way some people have a way with words, Palehound singer/songwriter Ellen Kempner has a way with a guitar: Looped lines tumble out in the knotty configurations worthy of a sailor’s handiwork, or maybe of academic writing." – SPIN, Album Of The Week
