Austin alt-rock vets Fastball returned earlier this year with Step Into Light, their first album in 8 years, and it's a nice dose of McCartney/Kinks-inspired power pop that holds up pretty well next to the band's early material. They've also still got it live too. We recently caught them opening Everclear's So Much for the Afterglow 20th anniversary tour and they mentioned on stage that they'd be on tour again in October. That tour is now announced.

The band is doing a little headlining run that brings them back to NYC for an intimate show at City Winery on October 2. That show is a pretty great double bill with the talented Wesley Stace, who also has a new album out this year: Wesley Stace's John Wesley Harding (which he recorded with The Jayhawks as his backing band, much like Ray Davies of The Kinks did for his new album). Tickets for the City Winery show are on sale now.

Welsey Stace also has upcoming Cabinet of Wonders variety shows at City Winery NYC on 9/15, 10/13, and 11/17 (tickets). Guests TBA. All upcoming Wesley Stace events are listed here and you can stream his new album below.

Fastball also just released a new video for "Behind the Sun" off their new album. Watch that below, along with the list of tour dates, new album stream, and some Fastball classics. One of those classics is "Out of My Head," which you kids might know as the song Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello sample on "Bad Things."
