New Orleans rockers Donovan Wolfington (a band, not a person) have teamed up with Topshelf Records to follow last year's debut LP, Stop Breathing, with a new EP, Scary Stories You Tell in the Dark, on April 8. Our first taste of that EP is the loud, driving, full-throttle rock of its first single "Keef Ripper." It's not exactly lo-fi, but it's raw in a way that sounds like the band took the song straight from the practice room to the studio, with no time for last-minute edits or production value. They keep it tuneful too. Check it out (via Noisey), along with the EP tracklist, below.

Following a trip to Austin for SXSW, Donovan Wolfington are also set to head out on the road with Chicago's Dowsing, who share their knack for scrappy guitars and solid tunes. That tour hits NYC on April 17 at Death by Audio. No advance tickets or other bands announced at the moment.

All dates are listed, with the tour flyer and streams from both bands, below...

let's give them a little credit for having a prescription medicine bottle and crack rock vial on their coffee table, too.
But if you really wanna be bad, you find the last gas station in town that still sells bath salts, buy out all their stock, and go to town without stopping for anything. I mean you snort, parachute, AND plug that stuff. Then pick up a guitar and make a recording.

Lots of great bands in new orleans, can't believe this is the one getting any kind of exposure

Are we running out of band names or something? New rule: no more bands with "wolf" in their names, no matter the usage.

New Rule: Anyone making new rules has to work an hour on the receiving side of the SVGH.

Oh wait, what did I just do ...

OK, I meant to say "New Rule - going into effect immediately after I'm done stating the rule ..." OK? That works for everyone right?
