Pop 1280

Canada's grunge-heavy psych act Crosss are releasing a split 7" with Astral Gunk that's due out on March 3. It's a little bit different than what we've heard from the band before, leaning way more to the indie/garage/surf side of things. You can stream it below.

Cross will dip below the border for a U.S. tour next month which will hit NYC on March 8 at Trans Pecos. That show with with Gothed-out post-punk Sacred Bones-ers Pop. 1280, local punks Night Squad and noisy experimental weirdos Buck Gooter. All Crosss tour dates are listed below.

Buck Gooter will also be on tour, which kicks off at Brooklyn's Ho_Se on February 21 with Florida. All their tour dates are listed, along with a song stream, below. As for Pop.1280, they're currently ripping things up over in Europe (probably right this second!). Those dates are below too.
