LA party-sludge dudes Big Business have announced a new album and an extensive North American tour to go along with it. The album is called Command Your Weather and that thing drops on July 8 via Joyful Noise/Gold Metal Records. The first single is called "Father's Day," and its a fun, thick slab of catchy sludge metal with a pretty huge chorus. Stream it below

Their tour hits NYC on July 6 at Saint Vitus and July 7 at Mercury Lounge, both with Andy and the Doroburm opening. Tickets for Vitus and Merc go on sale Friday (5/20) at noon. Merc is currently on AmEx presale.

Big Business bassist Jared Warren is also one of six bassists featured on the upcoming Melvins LP Basses Loaded. All dates listed, along with a stream of "Father's Day," below.
