Frankie Cosmos recently announced a tour with Eskimeaux (the band led by Frankie's band member Gabby Smith), and that tour has now been expanded. It already included two release parties for Frankie's new album Next Thing at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium in April with Anna McClellan, and now it includes a third NYC show.

This one happens May 1 at Market Hotel and it's part of the tour's second leg, which has support from Yowler (the great solo project of All Dogs singer Maryn Jones). Tickets for that show are on sale now. Updated dates are listed below. Frankie Cosmos' new album comes out on the date of their first Shea Stadium show (4/1) via Bayonet.

Eskimeaux also have a new EP, Year of the Rabbit, coming out on April 15 via Double Double Whammy. On their new single "WTF", Gabby opens up about her feelings on spending time apart from band member/partner Oliver Kalb during her time on the road with her other bands. While discussing the song, she told Billboard:

“We have a pretty unique relationship because we’re in a bunch of bands together. But we tour sometimes separately, because I’m in Frankie Cosmos… We’ll sometimes have long times apart and it’s very therapeutic because it gives me perspective on how dope our relationship is.”

Listen to "WTF" below.
