STICK TO YOUR GUNS / COUNTERPARTS / TERROR / SANCTION / YEAR OF THE KNIFE
The 2019 Pure Noise Tour has been announced with five of the label’s bands, and if you’re into melodic hardcore, this five-band package tour probably needs no introduction. This behemoth begins its trek in LA and then hits Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Worcester, Philly, Brooklyn (BK Bazaar on 8/1), Richmond, Atlanta, Austin, and more. All five bands are also releasing a split 12″ for the tour. More info on the split, all dates, and tickets here.
PEDRO THE LION / MEWITHOUTYOU
Not only are mewithoutYou currently on tour with an amazing triple bill of indie/emo/post-hc vets (them, Cursive, and The Appleseed Cast), they’ve now announced a co-headlining tour with another likeminded, long-running band, Pedro the Lion. This newly-announced run hits Austin, New Orleans, Tampa, Atlanta, Nashville, and more in August. All dates here. The run with Cursive and The Appleseed Cast hits NYC (sold out) and Jersey City (tickets) in May. mewithoutYou released [Untitled] last year, which was one of our favorites of 2018. Pedro the Lion returned this year with their first LP in 15 years, Phoenix.
Just one show, not a tour, but Choking Victim have scheduled a rare gig happening at Market Hotel.
DEERHUNTER / DIRTY PROJECTORS
This great indie rock double bill includes stops in LA, San Francisco, NYC, Philly, Boston, DC, and more.
The one and only Die Antwoord have announced the House of Zef Tour, which hits Red Rocks, LA’s Palladium, NYC’s Pier 17, Life Is Beautiful, Louder Than Life, and more.
Big Thief have once again expanded their tour, which now includes four upcoming NYC shows.

After taking some time away from music for UFO research, Tom Delonge is returning to the road with his band Angel & Airwaves, who just announced their first tour in seven years.
BADGE ÉPOQUE ENSEMBLE (TOURING WITH US GIRLS)
Slim Twin has teamed with some of the members of U.S. Girls’ live band (of which he is also a member) to form the jazzy, funky Badge Époque Ensemble who will release their debut album on June 7.
