Pierced Arrows are touring North America this February and March, including some dates with Lullabye Arkestra (whose recent album Threats/Worship is out on Vice). The bands play NYC-area shows on March 5th at Mercury Lounge and March 6th at Maxwell's. Tickets for Maxwell's go on sale Wednesday at noon. Mercury Lounge tickets go on sale AmEx presale Wednesday at noon. General sale starts Friday at noon.
Vice Records also recently signed BK band Growing, for a new record, Pumps, that's coming out April 6th.
Work on PUMPS began March 2009 at Ocropolis Studio in Brooklyn and was painstakingly arranged and mixed over a period of nine months. In between bouts of working at the studio, 2009 found Growing touring Japan and Italy for the first time, concluding the year with a second appearance at All Tomorrow's Parties and joining Fuck Buttons for a national US tour. 2010 tour dates to be announced soon."Hormones" off that record is posted above.
