With Growing's new Vice Records LP PUMPS due this week, the trio will celebrate with a US tour that will kick off with an album release party at Coco66 on Tuesday, 4/6. Eric Copeland (of Black Dice), Luke Roberts and The Monroe Indians will provide support along with DJ sets from Ron Morelli, Josh Wildman, and Taka Hiro.

The new album PUMPS is the first for Growing as a trio, and was recorded at The Ocropolis, aka Oneida's Brooklyn studio. The LP also marks their debut for Vice Records, who currently have the album up for preorder. Two tracks from that album are free downloads above. Cover art and tracklist below.

Growing recently made two videos, as well as a gang of video vignettes in celebration of PUMPS. One video, "Mind Eraser" is only available with purchase of the LP, but you can dig on all of the rest of the vids/vignettes (some of which are possibly NSFW?) below. All tour dates down there too...

EMPEROR"S CLOTHES! This band is and has always been hella boring! Maybe if I was friends with them I would be psyched on their shit. But I'm not, and after many tries I have to say they are boring as shit.

hahaha @ 5:58. so true. the people who talk the most shit on here are most likely just jealous that their band isnt on vice records or whatever

these dudes played at my house in KC 5 years ago and are extremely awesome people and musicians. also it was the loudest non-arena show i've ever seen, and it was in my living room.
