Javelin at Terminal 5 in 2011 (more by David Andrako)

Brooklyn's Javelin are heading out on tour this spring supporting Sleigh Bells. Electronic duo Elite Gymnastics are also on the tour, and as Pitchfork points out, it will be the first time Elite Gymnastics head out on a full tour.

Unfortunately that tour will not hit NYC, but Javelin will play a hometown show during the tour at Brooklyn Bowl on April 11. The show is free with RSVP and $5 tickets are available.

In support of the tour, Luaka Bop will release two of Javelin's 12"s ('Javelin' and 'Javelin 2') digitally on April 17. They had previously only been available on limited edition vinyl. You can download "Soda Popinski" off the Javelin 12" above.

Sleigh Bells will play the NYC area when they open for Red Hot Chili Peppers at Prudential Center in NJ this May.
