Extra Life and Parenthetical Girls are releasing a tour-only split 12" in support of an upcoming West Coast run together. The run is part of Extra Life's tour with Sam Mickens (The Dead Science, Xiu Xiu) that ends in NYC on July 30 at Silent Barn. All dates are listed below.
Hopefully Parenthetical Girls, who are in the process of releasing a 5-part Privilege EP series (Part III is the latest), come back to NYC soon too (they do not make it as far as the Silent Barn show).
The split 12" features Extra Life and Parenthetical Girls covering one of each other's songs. Extra Life takes on "I Was the Dancer," while Parenthetical girls deliver their rendition of "Head Shrinker." Pick it up at the merch table, but meanwhile we've got an exclusive stream of the Extra Life track (the one of them doing PG), with all tour dates, below...
