Wild Flag

The all-girl supergroup Wild Flag (featuring 2/3 of Sleater-Kinney), who initially formed to score the !Women Art Revolution documentary, are set to release their self titled debut on September 18 via Merge. NJ radio station WFMU will premiere the album single "Romance" on Saturday, June 18 on DJ Terre T's The Cherry Blossom Clinic show. In the meantime, you can hear a soundcloud stream of the track "Glass Tambourine," the b-side of their "Future Crimes" 7" released on Record Store Day (below). Both tracks from the 7" will be re-recorded for the full length.

The band will go on a North American tour this fall in support of the new album. The tour kicks off in early October and includes three NYC-area dates later that month. The tour hits The Bell House on October 15, Maxwell's on October 16, and Bowery Ballroom on October 18. Tickets are on sale now for The Bell House show and Maxwell's. Tickets for the Bowery show are not listed as of this post.

Kurt Vile is also on the bill and his album Smoke Ring for My Halo is available with an exclusive bonus track on iTunes for $7.99 for a limited time only. Tickets for the Brooklyn show are still available.

Wild Flag was terrific when they opened for Bright Eyes / Superchunk a few months back, worth all the hype.

They sounded ok, but the lyrics were terrible. Hard to take them seriously.

This song is surprisingly lousy!

This song is ok, I guess. I wanted to be blown away.

That song doesn't really do them justice - the live show is everything.

Looks like the Bowery show is no longer going on sale today. If you go to the Bowery website it no longer has onsale date listed or a ticketmaster link.
