The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
CURSIVE / CLOUD NOTHINGS / CRITERIA
Emo vets Cursive are dropping their latest album Get Fixed later this week, and they’ll kick off their North American fall tour starting next month, with exciting support from Cloud Nothings and The Appleseed Cast. The band just announced some newly-announced West Coast dates in January, with help from returning tourmates Cloud Nothings, and — excitingly — the return of Criteria, who were formed in the early 2000s by former/founding Cursive member Steve Pedersen (also of The White Octave) but who have been inactive for a while. The tour includes new stops in Denver, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas, Portland, and lots more. Before their headlining tour begins, Cursive also open some dates on Against Me!’s full albums tour, which begins this weekend. Check here for all dates, and hear the band’s newest single “I Am Goddamn” below.

IDLES / PREOCCUPATIONS
UK band IDLES and Canada’s Preoccupations make for a good, post-punky double bill, which is good as they’re going on a brief fall tour, with shows in NYC (Terminal 5 on 10/17), Philly, Boston, and Washington D.C. Before that, IDLES will play San Francisco with Surfbort on Thursday before heading back to Austin for ACL Fest Weekend 2. Find all updated dates here.
Artsy psych-dance rock band Guerilla Toss are back on their old label NNA Tapes for their upcoming EP What Would The Odd Do?, and after some East Coast shows earlier this fall, the band has expanded their North American tour through November, which includes new stops in Portland, Los Angeles, Austin, Seattle, Boise, Phoenix, and many other cities. Following these dates, the band will play a New Year’s Eve show at NJ’s White Eagle Hall (supporting Rubblebucket). Find all dates here.
Songwriter Molly Burch makes dreamy, nostalgic tunes inspired by ’60s rock and roll, so it’s fitting she’s planning to release a Christmas album next month, consisting of familiar holiday classics alongside a few original songs. She’ll promote the album with a trio of holiday-themed live dates: first at Brooklyn’s The Bell House on 12/4, then at LA’s The Pico Union Project on 12/11, and Austin’s Scholz Garten on 12/13. Tickets go on sale Friday (10/11), with one dollar from each ticket sale going towards PLUS1, which supports “organizations bringing dignity, equity, and access to communities who need it.”
LUCERO (AND BEN NICHOLS SOLO)
Country punk vets Lucero toured a bunch last year behind 2018’s Among the Ghosts, and they’re currently hitting the road again, as part of a North American fall tour, with support from Vandoliers, The Huntress and Holder of Hands. The tour hits Missoula, MT’s The Top Hat tonight (10/9), and continues throughout October, with other shows in Los Angeles, Phoenix, New Orleans, Seattle, Oklahoma City, and tons more, before the band plays a pair of three-day runs in Cambridge and Mill Valley, CA in December. Once this tour finishes, frontman Ben Nichols also has a one-off solo date at Garwood, NJ’s Crossroads on 1/18 (with Jared Hart and Chris Batten). View all dates here.
Philly punk songwriter Dave Hause recently wrapped up a 2019 tour with Bad Religion, supporting his recent fourth LP Kick, and he’s already got some new dates scheduled, including a pair of NJ shows in December: first opening for Taking Back Sunday’s Holiday Spectacular at Starland Ballroom on 12/13, and then a sold-out headlining show at Crossroads on 12/28. Dave will then kick off a 2020 North American tour in February, which hits NYC (Bowery Ballroom on 3/11), Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Chicago, Toronto, Baltimore, and others, before a final hometown date in Philadelphia. Tickets for these 2020 shows go on sale Friday (10/11). Head here for all dates, and stream Kick in full below.
