Pet Symmetry
Pet Symmetry

Pet Symmetry is the trio of Evan Weiss (Into It Over It, The Progress, Stay Ahead of the Weather and a million other projects), Erik Czaja (Dowsing, Kittyhawk) and Marcus Nuccio (ex-Dowsing). Following a few splits and EPs (including last year’s split with Slingshot Dakota), they’ll release their awesomely-titled first full length, Pets Hounds, on May 19 via Asian Man. They recently put out the album’s first single, “Give Thanks (Get Lost),” and just premiered a second one, “Class Action Force (Useless Tools),” over at Stereogum. Both songs show off the band’s ability to craft punk rock with legitimate hooks, as you can hear for yourself below.

In more related news, Evan Weiss’s beloved former band The Progress, who reunited for a Philly show in December, have now uploaded their entire discography to bandcamp. Stream all of it HERE and listen to their only full length, 2005’s excellent Merit, below. Fingers crossed for a reunion show in NYC too!

In related news, Dowsing is on tour with Free Throw now, and while that tour doesn’t hit NYC, both bands play here separately.

Dowsing, whose last release was their 2014 split with Annabel, play Brooklyn’s Paper Box on April 15 with Everything Ever and Slim Charles. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Free Throw, who put out the Those Days are Gone LP and a split with Oso Oso last year, will hit Shea Stadium on March 25 with Soda Bomb, Battle Ave and Pocket Hercules.
