Pittsburgh screamo band Shin Guard put out two great releases last year — their sophomore album 2020 and their split LP with For Your Health, Death of Spring — and they’ve been teasing LP3 on Twitter, so hopefully it won’t be long until we hear more about that. Meanwhile, they did just announce a lengthy tour with LA instrumental math rock duo Standards this spring.

The tour with Standards hits Brooklyn on April 1 at The Kingsland with local support from Ultra Deluxe and Good Looking Friends (tickets), and there’s a NJ show on April 2 at 4333 Collective.

All dates are listed, with streams of Shin Guard and Standards’ 2019 releases, plus some music from the openers on the Brooklyn show, below.

UPDATE: Standards also signed to Topshelf Records and they’ll release their debut album Fruit Island on the label this summer. They’re also touring with fellow California math rock duo Floral (whose Jack Shirley-helmed self-titled album comes out February 14 via Choke Artist). All Standards dates are listed below too, and stay tuned for music from Fruit Island.
