Portland, OR's Lee Corey Oswald (a band, not a person), who have recently played hometown shows with The Lawrence Arms and The Menzingers, and have one coming up with The Hotelier, will be leaving town and heading east in March on a tour with Boston punks Choke Up. That tour hits Brooklyn on March 28 at Suburbia (330 Melrose St). All dates are listed, with the tour flyer, below.

The band say they have a new album coming, though no real details or any music from that has surfaced yet. But in the meantime, you can check out their half of their split with Three Man Cannon that came out on Black With Sap last year. On those six songs, they've got lo-fi basement punk, shaky vocals, and slight folky tendencies that Desaparecidos fans may find themselves liking. It's definitely enough to make me curious about what they'll do next.

Listen to their half of that split, with the list of dates and tour flyer, below...

You're doing this just to bait me. I know it.

Im so sick of bands trying to be funny and stuff and write music people might like or relate to. Like why can't these bands just be serious and cool like the Shins or something. Like Neutral Milk Hotel gets it. Like Im so happy that when this lame band explained themselves about this picture (which appears to be a joke) that someone took it upon themselves to internet bully someone by saying "Sorry bwo" (which is totally not broish or something a meathead bully would say when they couldn't get someone's milk money)

This is the most press we have received since the 90's, Thanks Lee Corey Oswald!

^ hey, don't say that. Some PR intern really has his panties in a bunch over this thread. He'll be back soon to tell you what a jerk you are.

I've seen em play twice. These dude are actually real good. Kinda stoked to hear the new stuff, and see em play again. You tools should actually listen to the music instead of caring so much about a fuckin pic. Lee Corey Oswald, I do agree kinda dumb photo.
