Fresh off a national club trek Deas Vail is excited to stay on the road and embark on a trek of November / December dates with Sick of Sarah and Now, Now deemed the Oh Christmas Tour, with their new four track holiday EP For Shepherds & Kings that includes three new studio tracks and a live version of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," produced by Edison Glass frontman Joshua Silverberg at his Nashville based Red Red Studio, to be released on November 29. The bands new self-titled full release also out now on Mono vs Stereo, produced by Relient K guitarist and Mono Vs Stereo A&R Matthew Hoopes.

Hailing from Arkansas, the Arkansas Times deemed them “Russellville's purveyors of overpoweringly earnest, heart-on-sleeve indie-pop”, while Amplifier asks "Are we primed for another indie rock revolution?" and Sidelines says “Deas Vail nailed it!”.

Deas Vail is -
Wes Blaylock - Vocals, Keys
Laura Blaylock - Keys, Synth
Wes Saunders - Drums
Andy Moore- Guitar
Justin Froning- Bass

Following up their 2009 release Bird’s & Cages the new album is 12 songs that rise with edgy urgency and impassioned hope, filled with sweeping melodies and textured layers of guitars and keyboards fronted by singer Wes Blaylock’s wailing vocals match only by the band’s poetic songwiting.
