Failure will begin their tour this week in Florida, eventually ending up in NYC for CMJ. When we last spoke, we mentioned the very cool varying openers for the tour (Hum, Torche, Trail of Dead and Local H) but that NYC's opener was not announced. Now it is, and it's also very cool.
Local indie vets Blonde Redhead will open the show, which happens October 14 at Brooklyn Bowl, which additional support from Whitney, the new band with ex-Smith Westerns and Unknown Mortal Orchestra members. Tickets are still available.
The Brooklyn Bowl show is part of the two-day FLOODfest happening at that venue, which also includes The Joy Formidable, Grace Mitchell and Oscar on 10/15 (tickets).
