Happy Diving releasing an LP on Topshelf, making NYC debut (tour dates, stream)

Happy Diving

Oakland’s Happy Diving make the kind of catchy, riffy sludge pop that should appeal to fans of Dinosaur Jr or Torche, or a newer band like California X. They’ve been around for a few years, with an album and an EP under their belts, and they’re set to release their sophomore LP Electric Soul Unity on August 19 via Topshelf (pre-order). We’ve got the premiere of “Don’t Be Afraid Of Love” from that album, which you can listen to below.

Happy Diving have a tour coming up, including their NYC debut on August 9 at Shea Stadium with fellow Dinosaur Jr lovers Ovlov, plus Paear (who signed to Tiny Engines) and Patio. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
