The Thermals are no more, and while bassist Kathy Foster and drummer Westin Glass are currently focusing on Hurry Up (while Kathy also focuses on Roseblood and Slang), frontman Hutch Harris appears to be going solo. He launched a new Twitter account with a bio that reads “singer/songwriter,” posted that above picture, and tweeted that he’s playing solo at a voter registration benefit show at LA’s Teragram Ballroom on Sunday (9/23) with Hop Along singer Frances Quinlan, Crush (members of Black Lips), Fat Tony, DJ Keith Morris, and more.
Stoner metal legends Sleep, who released their first album in 15+ years this year, have announced a four-night New Year’s Eve run taking place in San Francisco. They play three nights at Great American Music Hall, 12/29 through NYE, and that follows their previously announced December tour dates. All dates here.
As they usually do, Warren Haynes’ band Gov’t Mule are ringing in the new year at NYC’s Beacon Theatre. This year they’ve got shows there on 12/29 and New Year’s Eve, and those shows follow a Pennsylvania show on 12/28 with Oteil & Friends. Tickets for NYC go on sale Friday, September 28 at noon with presales beforehand. All dates here.

(You can win tickets!) They’ve just added a Dallas show which happens October 23 at The Bomb Factory. Head here for all tour dates.
BIG RED MACHINE
Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner’s new band Big Red Machine released their great debut album last month, and now they’ve announced a NYC one-off happening at Terminal 5 in November.
NINE INCH NAILS / THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN
Nine Inch Nails, who opened their tour in Phoenix with a surprise performance of Broken in full (which they didn’t do again at night two), have extended their tour to include two more Las Vegas shows: November 30 and December 1 at The Joint. Like the rest of the tour, those shows are with NIN’s old friends/heroes The Jesus and Mary Chain, with additional support from HMLTD. All dates (including four previously announced NYC shows) here.
Jason Isbell has once again added dates to his 2018 tour schedule, a run of acoustic but not solo shows happening in Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky this December. Isbell also plays The National’s There’s No Leaving New York mini festival at Queens’ Forest Hills Stadium this month. All dates here.
THE HOLYDRUG COUPLE
UPDATE: This tour was postponed. Chilean duo The Holydrug Couple are back with Hyper Super Mega, which came out last week via Sacred Bones. Ives Sepúlveda Minho and Manuel Parra spent a lot of time listening to classic pop records from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s which reflects in the more immediate songwriting style heard on previous records. (Listen below.)
Their North American tour kicks off October 4 in Seattle and wraps up October 29 in Montreal. The NYC date happens October 19 at Public Arts. All dates are here.
CULT LEADER / PRIMITIVE WEAPONS
Cult Leader are releasing their new album A Patient Man on November 9 via Deathwish and touring, including a run with Brooklyn post-hardcore rippers Primitive Weapons. All dates (including Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus on 12/8) here.
INSANE CLOWN POSSE
Insane Clown Posse are celebrating 25 years of Hallowicked Clown Shows with an October tour that kicks off on 10/5 in Pittsburgh and wraps up shortly before Halloween on 10/29 in Lincoln, NE. The tour stops at Camden, NJ’s Rock Allegiance Music Festival, Hartford, CT’s Webster Theater and more. Whoop whoop.
Reunited indie vets Duster have added a third Brooklyn show to their schedule, and this one’s got Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes DJing.
Dan Boeckner’s Handsome Furs broke up seven years ago, but now his band Operators are briefly reviving the Handsome Furs catalog for two shows billed as “Operators Presents Handsome Furs.”
Hop Along have expanded their tour, including a two-night stand in Asbury Park for New Year’s Eve.
You may not be ready to think about the holidays yet but Old 97’s are, having just announced the “Holiday Extravaganza!” tour which includes a magician and a solo set from Rhett Miller.
THE MAGIC NUMBERS
UK band The Magic Numbers, who are best known in the U.S. for their 2005 debut album which had such songs as “Forever Lost and “Love’s a Game,” released new LP Outsiders earlier this year and have just announced West Coast dates for October.
