Boston hardcore band Defeater recently announced their anticipated first album in four years (self-titled), and released the promising lead single "Mothers' Sons," and now they've added a run of Northeast US shows happening around the album's release (5/10 via Epitaph). The shows happen in Somerville, Hartford, Brooklyn, and Philly, and they have a great support lineup of Milford, Mass post-hardcore trio Born Without Bones, Wilkes-Barre metallic hardcore crew One Step Closer, and Easthampton, Mass shoegazers Kindling (ex-Ampere).

The Brooklyn show happens May 11 at Saint Vitus. Tickets go on sale today (3/20) at 10 AM. These US shows happen after Defeater return home from a Europe/UK tour. All dates are listed below.

One Step Closer also play the United Blood and Sound and Fury festivals, they're opening one of the Boston-area dates of Have Heart's reunion tour, and they've got a run of shows with Choice To Make, including Brooklyn's Kingsland on April 9. If you haven't heard their 2019 EP From Me To You on Triple B Records, it's a good one. All of their dates are listed below too.

Kindling also open the Boston-area stop of the Jeromes Dream/Loma Prieta tour.
