Lemuria reissuing ‘Get Better’ & playing it in full on tour with Mikey Erg (dates)


Lemuria were doing the whole indie-punk thing a few years before it took off on a more major level, so now that that sound is a bit bigger, it’s a good time for Lemuria to reissue some of their earlier material. Stereogum points out that they’ll do just that on December 16, when Asian Man Records reissues their 2008 debut album Get Better. It’s coming with new artwork (pictured above), an essay on the making of the album by drummer Alex Kerns, and a bonus 7″ with outtakes. One of those outtakes is “Big Gold Adults,” which you can hear right now:

Lemuria will also play Get Better in full on a 2017 tour (with other stuff too). That tour includes a NYC show on February 17 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. That show, and many others, is with Mikey Erg (who also opens the just-announced Falcon tour). Tickets go on sale Friday (11/4) at noon. All dates are listed below.
