Philly shoegazers Creepoid have their new album Cemetery Highrise Slum coming June 23 via Collect Records, and they have now announced a series of US shows happening directly after its release. Those includes dates with No Joy, Destruction Unit, Swirlies and more.
There's a NYC show happening on release day at Mercury Lounge (6/23), and that one's with heavy psych rockers Ecstatic Vision. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/15) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (5/13) at noon. All dates are listed below.
Ecstatic Vision will have their new album, Sonic Praise, out the following week (6/30) via Relapse. They recently put out its new single "Don't Kill The Vibe" which is equally driving and hazy, and should fit pretty well with Creepoid. Listen to that below, with two tracks from the Creepoid album.
Creepoid - "Dried Out"
Creepoid - "American Smile"
Ecstatic Vision - "Don't Kill The Vibe"
