Scottish lo-fi trio PAWS are currently on a North American tour with We Are Scientists which hit NYC for a Bowery Ballroom show last month (4/18). After that tour ends, however, PAWS will give NYC a chance to see them headlining in a much smaller, sweatier venue before they head back home. The band will hit Shea Stadium on May 24 and there’s solid support coming from bedroom songwriter Alex G, Canadian punk rippers The Dirty Nil and Ma. Updated dates are listed below.

The Shea show doubles as the release show for PAWS’ new record, Youth Culture Forever, which comes out in the US this week (5/6) via Fat Cat. If you liked the fast-paced and highly melodic tunes on their debut, Cokefloat!, you’ll likely find YCF is packed with plenty more of those. You can stream the whole thing (via SPIN), with the video for “Tongues”and the list of tour dates, below…
