Downtown Boys' first album for Sub Pop, Cost of Living -- which was produced by Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto -- comes out next week (8/11) and they're streaming the whole thing now. If you've seen Downtown Boys live, you know their shows are a highly political, bilingual, sax-fueled punk parties that are about as empowering as an anti-Trump rally. Cost of Living channels all of that energy into a 34-minute LP and it's their best-sounding and most accessible release to date. Listen at NPR.

Downtown Boys have also expanded their tour, adding three Northeast dates in November: Baltimore, Philly, and Brooklyn. That's in addition to a US run this month, Riot Fest, Made In America, and more.

The Brooklyn show happens November 17 at BK Bazaar (tickets). Updated dates are listed below.
