Useless Eaters (aka Nashville resident Seth Sutton) are currently on an East Coast tour that hits NYC this week for two shows with Nice Guys: Thursday, August 23 at Cake Shop with Sam Coffey & the Iron Lungs, and Friday, August 24 at Death by Audio with Xray Eyeballs and King Prom (mems of Numerators, Splinters, Pamela). All tour dates are at the bottom of this post.
The band have just released a new EP titled Black Night Ultraviolet (cover art above) that's four songs of dark, paranoid pop, all of which are really good. The whole thing is streamable below. The EP's standout cut, "Hypertension," is also the name of the new Useless Easters album which will be out this fall.
That EP stream and a list of Useless Eaters tour dates are below.
