Geronimo!, a regular in the Chicago indie rock scene, are set to release their new album, Cheap Trick, on May 13 via Exploding In Sound Records (Porches, Krill). They've just unveiled its first single, the shouty, noisy rocker "Mr. President," which you can stream below. That's the album artwork above.
The band will be going on a tour around its release, which brings them to NYC for shows on May 9 at Shea Stadium with Purling Hiss, Lost Boy?, Vulture Shit (who also play NYC tonight [3/21]), and bbigpigg; and May 10 at Death by Audio with Ovlov, Dead Wives and LVL UP. Those are both some pretty solid lineups. All dates are listed below.
In related news, Dead Wives, the project fronted by Speedy Ortiz drummer Mike Falcone, released their new cassette, Buzzy Fuzzy, this week (3/18) via ObscureMe Records. It features covers of Ween's "Don't Sweat It" and Nicki Minaj's "Beez in the Trap," plus six originals that should appeal to fans of Mike's other band. Stream the whole tape below. And if you haven't yet, check out pics of Speedy Ortiz at SXSW.
When Superchunk were in NYC for a couple Bowery Ballroom shows and a Fallon performance earlier this year, they headed to Brooklyn DIY spot Shea Stadium to film the video for I Hate Music track "Void." In addition to the band themselves, the video features comedian/actors Jon Glaser and Jon Benjamin, plus members of multiple local bands including Ava Luna, Heliotropes, Aye Nako, Lost Boy?, Weird Womb, and others. Were you in it? Check out the new video below.
Superchunk also have a number of dates coming up, including SPIN's Year In Music Event which happens in NYC on December 10 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Danny Brown and Charli XCX. It's a semi-private show, but we're giving away a few pairs of tickets via Twitter. Details on how to enter the contest along with all tour dates and the video, below...
