Tennis at the Bell House in March (more by Jessica Amaya)
Tennis

Tennis will follow their debut LP, which came out earlier this year, with the album Young and Old, which comes out on February 14 via Fat Possum. The album was produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys (who have two MSG shows with Arctic Monkeys in March), who also produced the recently released single, "Origins," which you can stream below.

Tennis will tour in support of the new album in February and March, coming to NYC on March 3 at Bowery Ballroom (two days before an actual game of Tennis happens inside Madison Square Garden). Tickets for the Bowery show are on sale now.

The duo also recently recorded two covers; one being of The Zombies' "Tell Her No," and the other of Broadcast's "Tears in the Typing Pool." You can stream both of these covers below.

Speaking of Broadcast, whose singer Trish Keenan tragically passed away earlier this year, group member James Cargill is working on a new Broadcast album which will use vocals that Keenan had recorded before her death. In an interview with Under the Radar, James said, "Trish left a lot of tapes, four-tracks and stuff, and I've been going through those. It's difficult, and I'm connected to it at the same time. It's wonderful, but I'm also feeling a sense of loss." He's also working on a soundtrack to the Peter Strickland film Berberian Sound Studio, which he and Keenan had begun together.

Game. Set. Match! I love this band! Seeing them is a ball! They courted me as there number #1 fan! It is a Raquett more of you don't like them. It would be a major advantage to you if you gave them a chance. This band is great my younger brother likes them at 15, me 30 and my older sis who is 40 likes them too! I can't wait for them too roll around again. If they do I will take the train into PENN station.

I'd rather pay to see John MacEnroe yell at these twits.
