After a triumphant Brooklyn shows last week at Death By Audio and Public Assembly, The Men will hit the road for a US tour in early August, kicking off with a show at 538 Johnson on August 4th with Nomos, Brain F and Only The Messenger. The tour will last through the end of the month and into September, with the arty punk band covering roads from coast to coast before they return to NYC in middle September.
