Alan Sparhawk (of Low)

Foggy Notions is proud to present Alan Sparhawk (of Low) live at Opium. Tickets on sale now.

On September 27th, Sub Pop will release White Roses, My God, the debut solo effort from Alan Sparhawk. Though he’s obviously (and justifiably) best known for his thirty years in the legendary band Low, a look at Sparhawk’s many side projects across that same span of time shows him experimenting with everything from punk and funk to production work and improvisation. Low itself never settled for a set sound or approach. The band was always a collaboration—a conversation, a romance—between Sparhawk and his wife, Mimi Parker, who was the band’s co-founder, drummer, co-lead vocalist, and its blazing irreplaceable heart. Parker passed away in 2022 after a long battle with cancer.
There is no question that White Roses, My God is a record borne of grief. However, it would be reductive, even foolish, to see grief as the sole source or the final limit of this taut, brilliant, provocative, thrilling album, whose bold experimentation is powered by profound lyrics and propulsive beats. White Roses, My God is an exorcism whose purpose is not to banish the spirit but to set it free.
Recorded at 20 Below Studios in Duluth, MN, White Roses, My God was co-produced and engineered by Alan Sparhawk and Nat Harvie, mixed by Nat Harvie, and mastered by Heba Kadry. The album features standout singles “Get Still” and “Heaven,” alongside today’s release for the album's pulsating debut offering, “Can U Hear,” the video for which was directed by Rick Alverson.
Alan Sparhawk’s tour schedule in support of White Roses, My God begins November 2nd, 2024, in Dublin, IE, at Opium and currently ends January 25th, 2025, in Denver at the Bluebird.
This announcement features a new, eight-date headlining run in the US (Jan. 13th-25th), which includes a stop at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere on April 5th. These shows will follow his previously announced 2024 dates— UK/EU headline dates (Nov. 2nd-5th), an appearance at Pitchfork Music Festival London at The Barbican with Jessica Pratt (Nov. 6th), and support dates with Godspeed You! Black Emperor (Nov. 8th-24th).
White Roses, My God is available to preorder now from Sub Pop. LP preorders from (North America), Mega Mart 2 (UK/EU), and independent retailers worldwide will receive the limited Loser edition on Clear vinyl (while stock lasts!).
