Petal, the project of Kiley Lotz that also features Tigers Jaw's two main members Brianna Collins and Ben Walsh, will tour this September with their Scranton, PA neighbors Captain We're Sinking. The tour hits NYC on 9/12 at Black Bear Bar. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates, including a Long Island show, are listed below.
Still no word on Petal's first release for Run For Cover, which she signed to last year, but Kiley and Brianna did recently debut the song "Heaven" in an acoustic Cozy Couch Session. You can check that out below.
Tigers Jaw, who recently released an acoustic LP and went on an acoustic tour, are contributing to the third installment of Kevin Devine's split 7" series, Devinyl Splits (following Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves and Nada Surf's Matthew Caws). This installment has both artists covering The Cure, with Tigers Jaw taking on "In Between Days" and Kevin doing "Lovesong." Tigers Jaw's cover is out now and can be streamed below. The band will return to NYC to open for popular pop punk bands New Found Glory and Yellowcard at Best Buy Theater on 10/24 (tickets).
