Bass Drum of Death @ Austin Psych Fest
Austin Psych Fest

We've announced that Japandroids are playing Hopscotch Fest and Pygmalion Music Festival. It's since been revealed that these two festival appearances are part of a larger North American tour that Japandroids are going on with with Bass Drum of Death. The tour stops by New York at Mercury Lounge on September 14. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/10) at noon (though note that Mercury Lounge does not list Bass Drum on the bill).

The Mercury show is currently one of the very few on the tour that doesn't list Bass Drum of Death (or anyone for that matter) as an opener. However, BDOD play the Manhattan venue two other times this summer, and two Brooklyn shows too. They open the previously discussed Hanni El Khatib show at Mercury Lounge on 6/24 (tickets) and for Hanni again at Glasslands the next night (6/25) (tickets). The Brooklyn show also has Heavenly Blows and Web Dating on the bill.

BDOD then play Mercury again on July 22 with WU LYF (tickets) and Knitting Factory the next night (7/23) with WU LYF, Young Magic and Dapwell (Das Racist member DJ set) (tickets).

Bass Drum of Death's new LP, GB City, is out now via Fat Possum. Check out the band's recent video for "Get Found", along with more dates and a belated set of pictures of the band at Austin Psych Fest last month, below...

Wait, wait - this is like deja vu all over again

Shouldn't we be calling this band Black Stripes, or Off-color Stripes, or Reverse Stripes or something like that?

THEY'RE A TWO PIECE BAND SO THEY'RE A RIP OFF OF THE WHITE STRIPES!!!!!!!!!!

Could the douchebag who incorporates "meh" into the name of every band talked about on BV please stop? We get it, you're very clever and your taste in music is clearly superior to everyone else's. Now go away.

Ha, never liked the phrase "meh" to begin with! You people sound like fucking billy goats when you say that shit.
