We understand there's way more important things going on in the world right now and at this point we could give up and float backwards, but we have realized attitude and outlook really matter. As the world continues to take strong measures and fight the spread of COVID-19, our thoughts and wishes go out to you, your friends and loved ones. We have to come to terms that this is a fluid circumstance that is just getting started. As for now, we must postpone our APRIL and MAY tour dates, but please hang on to your tickets as we have every intention of rescheduling the dates. If you are in need of a refund, please contact your point of purchase. We will continue to reassess the situation day by day, but we feel hopeful that we can all be reunited once again soon. In the event that public health or safety is still questionable we will make all adjustments needed. We would never ask you to attend an unsafe event. Stay safe and healthy. Creativity (and social distancing) will save the world. We love you forever – Brian & Mat
WAXAHATCHEE (RESCHEDULED DATES)
Waxahatchee has announced tour dates that have been rescheduled from the spring to the late summer and fall, including the Brooklyn shows which will now happen at Elsewhere on October 6 & 7. There’s also a show at NJ’s Asbury Lanes on August 14. Head here for all dates.

BOB MOULD (NEW FALL DATES)
Bob Mould’s postponed tour with Jason Narducy has now been rescheduled for November:
The Motionless In White tour that Knocked Loose were set to open has been postponed “to a different timeframe this year.” As of now, Knocked Loose and Hatebreed’s run opening for Parkway Drive is still on (but Hatebreed recently cancelled headlining spring dates and postponed their new album release indefinitely), and Knocked Loose are still scheduled to play the recently-announced Sound and Fury festival.
