Female-fronted folk-punk Heartless Bastards and the two-man Peter Wolf Crier are going on tour this summer. That'll include a pair of NYC shows: one at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 14th (tickets on sale Friday at noon) and one at Bowery Ballroom on July 15th (tickets on sale Thursday at noon).

Before then, Minneapolis' Peter Wolf Crier have their own shows across North America. Those include three NYC dates: Pianos on June 15th (tickets), Mercury Lounge on June 16th (tickets) and Union Hall on June 18th.

Their Mercury Lounge show intersects with UK band First Aid Kit & Samantha Crain's tour together (tickets), which also stops at the Bell House the night before June 15th (tickets). First Aid Kit, you may remember, were supposed to be here in October but never got never got their visas sorted in time for the trip. They're excited...

"To tour the States has always been our biggest dream - to finally get the chance to come over feels amazing, " they gush. "We are heavily inspired by American music, so to be able to see the places where many of our influences come from and have lived their lives is very exciting. We've also gotten a great online response from American fans and we're looking forward to playing for them". Further mining their excitement they add," Our dear friend Samantha Crain is supporting us. We're sure it is going to be a magical tour."
First Aid Kit's debut album, The Big Black & The Blue, is out May 25th (video below. MP3 above). Peter Wolf Crier's debut album Inter-Be will be released by JagJaguwar on the same day, but you can pre-order it now and you get an instant download. Two free tracks from the album above, a full stream at The Current, and a video with all tour dates below...

I have the First Aid Album on vinyl (which I ordered online) and they threw in a CD (ep) of an earlier release from them. Looking forward to the Mercury show.
