Pianos Become the Teeth (who released one of our favorite punk/emo albums of the 2010s) are gearing up for a tour with Caspian, whose upcoming album On Circles features a song sung by PBTT frontman Kyle Durfey, but that's not all Kyle's been up to. He's now also fronting a new band called Burial Waves, whose lineup also includes guitarist Ross Hurt (We Were Black Clouds), drummer Jimmy Rhodes (We Were Black Clouds), guitarist Matthew Dowling (Deleted Scenes, The Effects), and bassist Kevin Hilliard (Flavor Waster, Caverns).

Burial Waves debuted their first song, "Cinema Shame," in a live session video shot at Showroom Studios and directed by Rory Sheridan, and the song is a sweeping, intense, vocal-oriented post-rock song that fans of latter day PBTT should love immediately. It already seems like Burial Waves are much more than some tossed-off side project, and don't be deterred by this just being a live session video; the recording is already studio quality. Check it out below.

Burial Waves are playing their first two shows in February: one at Baltimore's Metro Gallery on 2/4 with Slow Crush and Grivo and one at DC's Comet Ping Pong on 2/22 with Aertex & Murder. Hopefully they've got more TBA and more music coming soon -- stay tuned.

That Baltimore show is part of the Slow Crush/Grivo tour, which also hits Long Island's Amityville Music Hall on 2/6 (tickets) and Brooklyn's Saint Vitus on 2/7 (tickets). All dates here.

Meanwhile, the Caspian/Pianos Become the Teeth tour (which also includes Maserati) hits NYC on 4/8 at LPR (tickets). PBTT also posted this end-of-the-decade letter to their fans, family, and friends:


s/o to Travis for the tip!
