The powerful, political punk band Downtown Boys recently signed to Sub Pop and released the new single "Somos Chulas (No Somos Pendejas)." Now their first album for the label has been announced. It's called Cost of Living and it's due out on August 11. In addition to "Somos Chulas (No Somos Pendejas)," it includes the brand new single "A Wall," which is a direct criticism of Trump's hope to build a you-know-what. Listen and check out the tracklist below. Pre-order the album, which was produced by Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto, here.

Downtown Boys have several tour dates coming up, including two Brooklyn shows. They play Pitchfork's Northside showcase on June 9 at Saint Vitus with Flesh World, Field Agent (Deafheaven bassist Stephen Lee Clark), and the newly-added Kelsey Lu (tickets).

They also play a free House of Vans Brooklyn show on July 12 with Royal Headache and Sheer Mag (RSVP opens 6/26 at 9 AM). All dates are listed below.
