May 15, 2013, LOS ANGELES – Palms, the Los-Angeles based band featuring members of ISIS and Chino Moreno of Deftones, have unveiled the album art for their June 25th self-titled debut album as well as the six-song (47 minute) track list.

A special iTunes pre-order gives purchasers an immediate download of “Tropics” (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/palms/id644888681). Physical pre-order packages will be available later this month.
The band recently premiered “Patagonia,” a song from the upcoming album, via Pitchfork (http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/15371-patagonia/).
The quartet have also announced their first tour dates: a four-date west coast run this July with stops in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles and San Francisco:
Palms came together following the demise of ISIS, with Jeff Caxide (bass), Aaron Harris, (drums) and Clifford Meyer (keyboards/guitar) electing to continue playing music together. “After a little time Jeff, Cliff, and I decided that it was insane that we all still lived here in Los Angeles and weren’t playing together,” Harris says. “It just sort of happened naturally, probably because we have been playing together for so long, and things started to come together. But we didn’t want to be instrumental: We wanted vocals. We just weren’t exactly sure who that would be at first.”
The band, knowing that Chino Moreno (Deftones) had been a fan of ISIS, thought he would be a great fit and he agreed. “A chance to work with the guys from ISIS sounded like a lot of fun,” Moreno says, “I’ve always been into the atmospheric sounds they had created with that project and felt my sense of melody would meld well with theirs.”
