Restorations (photo by Mike Vorrasi)

Philly rockers Restorations, who have a split with Rosetta (among other things) under their belts, released their second album, LP2, earlier this year via SideOneDummy (Title Fight, Chuck Ragan). The record's packed with fuzzy sludge-rock riffs that wouldn't be out of place on a Torche or Coliseum album, but singer Jon Loudon's got Hold Steady-style everyman's vocals with some Hot Water Music gruffness. There's a bit of Jawbreaker-y emo in there too, and when these sounds all come together, the result is pretty great. Check out the video for the album's opening track, "D," along with a stream of the whole record, below.

This fall, Restorations will be heading out on a co-headlining tour with Weatherbox, who just signed to Triple Crown Records and recently released a split with Sainthood Reps. That tour brings the bands to NYC for a show on November 9 at Saint Vitus, where Restorations opened for The Menzingers in June. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates, including Gainesville's The Fest, are listed, along with the video and LP stream, below...
