Pity Sex at BV-CMJ 2013 (more by Chris La Putt)
Pity Sex

As previously discussed, UK post-hardcore band Basement ended their hiatus and will be touring North America this year, which includes a NYC show at the Grand Ballroom in Webster Hall on August 19 (moved from the Marlin Room, which had been moved from the Studio). Since we last spoke, two of Basement's Run for Cover labelmates, the shoegazy Pity Sex and the '90s alt-rock-loving Superheaven, have been added to the most of the US dates. Another '90s-loving band, Ovlov (but more Dino Jr/Sonic Youth-style love) also open the NYC show, and a few other Northeast dates. Tickets for Webster Hall are still available. Updated dates are listed below.

Also, you won't have to wait that long to see Pity Sex, because as previously mentioned, they're first touring with other RFC labelmates, Tigers Jaw, and hitting NYC on 6/18 at MHOW with Petal and Loose Planes (tickets).

Superheaven are also touring sooner with Nothing, which hits The Studio at Webster Hall on 6/14 (tickets). When we last spoke, we mentioned that Superheaven is actually Daylight, though at the time we thought it was them being billed under a secret name. Turns out, Daylight have actually officially changed their name to Superheaven. You can read their letter explaining why (legal reasons), with the lists of their dates and Pity Sex's dates, below.

Why Daylight are changing their name to Superheaven:

We're back home from our recent tour with Bayside, Four Year Strong, and Mixtapes. First, we would like to extend a than you to those bands for making it fun and an overall great experience. Also, thank you to anyone who made it out to a show and supported the tour, and an extra thanks if you bought a record or a t-shirt, or gave us a place to stay along the way.

With that said, we have some important news to share. Some of you may have already figured it out, but we are changing our name. We will no longer be performing or releasing music under the name "Daylight."

Long story short, we legally cannot operate under the band name "Daylight" anymore. So we're changing it. The music we write, the members we have, and the message we put forth remain unchanged. We will still perform any and all of the music we have written together up to this point.

From this point on, this band is called Superheaven.
