Centro-Matic announces new LP & tour w/ Sarah Jaffe (dates)


Will Johnson of Centro-Matic is touring, like Dave Bazan is, living room-to-living room in May. In June he’ll hop back on the Centro-Matic train to play a string of dates with Sarah Jaffe that will include Mercury Lounge on 6/30. Tickets are now on sale. All dates are listed below.

Centro-Matic is self-releasing their 10th LP on 6/21. “Candidate Waltz” was recorded by Scott Solter (Spoon, Mountain Goats) and Matt Pence at the Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas, and features nine tracks. Check out the LP art, and track list below. And if you aren’t familiar with Centro-matic, the band has you covered…

“People often ask what Centro-matic or South San Gabriel album to start with. There’s no easy answer to this, so we are giving away a couple of songs from each album spanning 15 years. Please share this with your friends.”
