We Were Promised Jetpacks

We Were Promised Jetpacks' new EP The Last Place You'll Look came out in March on Fat Cat. That's the cover above.

In addition to playing the June 30th Passion Pit/Tokyo Police Club/Suckers show at Governors Island (they're opening), We Were Promised Jetpacks has added a Tuesday, June 29th headlining show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Bear Hands open. Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon. General sale starts Friday, May 28th at noon.

The Brooklyn show is one of at least seven shows that WWPJ and Bear Hands will play together this summer. Those dates include Louisville, Kentucky's Forecastle Festival which has updated its July lineup since we last spoke. That updated lineup and day-by-day schedule, and all dates below...

I still listen to These Four Walls constantly. "Roll Up Your Sleeves" is my personal fave.
