Twerps

Australia's Twerps will be heading back to North America for a tour this fall. Their tour kicks off in NYC on October 12 at Cake Shop with The Memories and more TBA, and then they'll be back in the city a week later for CMJ where they'll play Public Assembly on October 19 for the Panache showcase with Turbo fruits, Dent May, Dignan Porch, Mac Demarco, and Vockah Redu. Look for more CMJ to be added as we get closer to the fest.

Before the tour starts, Twerps will release a new single, "Work it Out," which is out September 17 via Chapter Music/Underwater Peoples. You can stream the b-side, "He's in Stock," below where you'll also find a list of all tour dates.

is this a band made up of BV posters?

3:54: ...and most people who comment on BV (not necessarily you there, just in general).

That dude flipping the bird with the snarky smirk? He needs a beatdown.

Yes, 4 lucky BV commenters were picked at random to be in a band whose namesake was developed to represent the general BV demographic. Now all that is needed is a reality show!

sad that every bv comment ever is about how bad a band's name is

"The single most apropos band name EVAR!!!11!11!"

I totally agree!!

3:54 - It's "apt." Apropos means "in relation to."

But nice try.

It sounds like the members of this band are commenting here right now!

I love Brooklyn Vegan, but man, they like to get obscure.
I guess all you really need is a hubcap and a rubber band and BV will give you publicity. C'mon, BV, we need filter some of this out.

BV hipped me to the finest bowed saw player I've ever seen. I was also able to buy locally sourced artisinal vegan jellies at that performance. Who knew we grew kumquats in Brooklyn?!?

Nope, you're still wrong. Its not in reference TO anything, you think they look like twerps, which make the name apt or fitting, it doesn't signify any direct relevance or association. The name twerps is not related or in reference to the band, you're implying it's ironic. Sorry brah. You tried sounding smart and failed.

Love them. Make more great songs!

The band kinda sounds like The Pixies. I like how they are a more calm sound and not so heavy.
