Citizen on the 2015 Warped Tour (photo by Mimi Hong)
Citizen

Back in June, we wrote about the very good new Citizen album, Everybody Is Going To Heaven, which sees the band heading in a heavier direction, taking cues from The Jesus Lizard's Goat and Brand New's Daisy. At the time, their only dates were unfortunately on the Warped Tour, but now they have another tour coming up that should be a little better. Citizen were added as an opener to the Circa Survive (playing Juturna in full) and RX Bandits tour happening this fall.

That tour begins in NYC on October 23 at Best Buy Theater (tickets) and wraps up back in this area at NJ's Starland Ballroom on November 28 (tickets). All dates are listed, with a stream of the Citizen album, below...

AGBPOL @ MHOW - 4/13/15
A Great Big Pile of Leaves

Brooklyn's A Great Big Pile of Leaves brought their tour with headliners RX Bandits and openers Cayetana to their hometown earlier this week at Music Hall of Williamsburg (4/13). AGBPOL's latest LP is mathy, chilled-out pop in the vein of Minus the Bear, but live they came off a bit more like a straight rock band. The crowd wasn't as packed for them as it was for RX Bandits, but they definitely had a lot of people there rocking out and singing all the words. Pictures of all three bands from that show are in this post.

AGBPOL wrap up the run with RX Bandits/Cayetana in Philly tonight (4/17) and then head out on a European tour with The Early November and You Blew It!. Those same three bands also play NJ's Pinelands Music Festival in August (tickets).

In between the European tour and NJ festival, AGBPOL will return to Music Hall of Williamsburg (6/19), this time to headline. The show's in support of the five-year anniversary of their debut album, Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?. Tickets go on sale today at noon.

All dates are listed, with more pictures from MHOW and an AGBPOL music video, below...

RX Bandits

Philly indie rockers Cayetana are loving the road lately. Having already played a bunch this year, they're now set to head out again supporting prog/reggae punks RX Bandits.

UPDATE: A Great Big Pile of Leaves are on that run too as direct support, making for one killer triple bill. AGBPOL are also on board for NJ's Pinelands Music Festival on August 15 with The Early November, You Blew It! (both of whom they're touring Europe with) and more.

TSOAF

Earlier this year RX Bandits broke their silence with a 10th anniversary tour for The Resignation, and now their weirdo, experimental post-hardcore side project with Anthony Green, The Sound of Animals Fighting is coming out of hiding too. The band has mostly been a studio project, save for four west coast shows in 2006 that became the We Must Become the Change We Want to See DVD. Now they're visiting the road for a second time, and this time they'll be on the East Coast too, including a show in NYC on March 22 at Best Buy Theater. Opening the East Coast dates is post-rock collective Unwed Sailor, led by Pedro the Lion associate Johnathon Ford. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (11/15) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Throughout TSOAF's run as a band, they've had multiple contributing members, but the core lineup is currently current RX Bandits members Matt Embree and Chris Tsagakis, former RX Bandit Rich Balling, and Anthony Green. On the tour, the band will be revisiting songs from 2005's progressive post-hardcore freakout Tiger and the Duke and 2006's otherworldly and even weirder Lover, the Lord Has Left Us, plus playing songs from 2008's The Ocean and the Sun for the first time live.

Check out a full video of their 2007 DVD, along with the list of dates, below...

Felled Trees

Two different sections of the '90s underground, indie rock and emo, will be coming together with a new project called Felled Trees. The band is comprised of members of '90s emo bands Texas is the Reason, Samiam, Knapsack (plus newer bands like Thrice and RX Bandits) and more, and they've come together to record a tribute album to Dinosaur Jr.'s Where You Been for its 20th anniversary. The core lineup is bassist Ed Breckenridge (Thrice), guitarist Sergie Loobkoff (Samiam, Solea, Knapsack), and drummer/producer Roger Camero (No Motiv, Peace'd Out), and the album includes guest vocal appearances from Garrett Klahn (Texas is the Reason, Atlantic/Pacific, Solea), Jason Beebout (Samiam), Blair Sheehan (Knapsack, The Jealous Sound), Karl Larsson (Last Days of April), Davey Warsop (Suedehead, Beat Union), plus keys by Steve Choi (RX Bandits, Peace'd Out).

The first single released from the album was "Get Me" with Texas is the Reason's Garret Klahn on vocals, and the second is "Start Choppin" with Samiam's Jason Beebout on vocals, which makes its premiere in this post. It stays pretty true to the original and Jason's take on J Mascis' relaxed drawl totally captures his essence. In Jason's own words:

"Start Choppin" is rad because it is such an anthem, you can't help but sing along. Cruising through the verses with J Mascis, diggin the vibe and feeling awesome and then, like so many other good songs, when you get to the chorus there's that hard part that makes your voice crack and you are reminded that you are mortal and this band is great and you are thankful they were able to pull off such a sweet number.
And his Samiam bandmate Sergie Loobkoff added:
When 'Green Mind' came out, I was still hung up on the erroneous thought that Dinosaur had lost it or 'sold out' because a. it being on a, gasp, major label and that b. J squeezed out Murph on drums and 'some guy' replaced Lou. But in the few years that passed by the time "Where You Been' came out, I realized that J was the far superior drummer, Mike Johnson was an tasty bassist...and who cares what label a band is on?

So I put on 'Where You Been' and of course even just the opening lead of 'Out There' blew my mind. You'd think that it would be hard to match on the second song...but 'Start Choppin' was a motherfucker. The guitar riff has that feeling of familiarity...like I already knew it when I heard it for the first time. And the melody and lyrics were classic Mascis. If you relate to one of his songs...well, thematically there isn't a huge range of topics...you 'get' all of his songs.

The album comes out on October 15 via Siren Records, and it can be pre-ordered here. Check out the streams of "Start Choppin" and "Get Me," along with the album artwork and tracklist, below.

In related news, Knapsack bring their previously mentioned reunion tour to NYC on November 17 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Have Mercy and I Hate Our Freedom. Tickets for that show are still available.

RX Bandits

RX Bandits went on what they referred to as their last-ever tour back in 2011, though we realized that wasn't totally true when earlier this year they were announced, along with Glassjaw, Andrew WK, and others for the mostly-mall-punk Skate and Surf Fest, which goes down in NJ this month (5/18-19).

Now the band have announced that this summer they'll be going on a full tour in celebration of the tenth anniversary of The Resignation, which they'll be performing in its entirety plus a second set of other songs from their career. By The Resignation, the band had abandoned most of their ska punk roots and they hadn't gone full-blown progressive rock yet (that would happen on 2006's ...And the Battle Begun), resulting in their most straight-ahead rock record. Songs like "Sell You Beautiful" and "Decrescendo" are still rippers, and though I lost some of my interest in the band later in their career, this tour is bringing back my excitement for them.

The tour kicks off in their home state of California in early July and makes it way over to NYC for a show on July 20 at Best Buy Theater. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/10) at noon.

All tour dates are listed, along with some song streams from the album, below...

Today is a Manhattanhenge

Ska-turned-prog rockers RX Bandits are currently on their last ever tour. According to an interview with Playmaker, RX Bandits are not breaking up, they're just doing their last tour. RX Bandits hit the scene in the mid-to-late '90s playing pretty standard poppy ska punk. By 2003's The Resignation, the Bandits showed signs of experimenting outside of the realm of the genre and have since released 2 more progressive albums and have shared significant members with far-out experimental rockers The Sound of Animals Fighting. Catch them in NYC tonight (7/12) and Wednesday (7/13) at Irving Plaza with Maps & Atlases. Check out the latter's recent video for "Solid Ground" below. - Andrew Sacher
