Sainthood Reps

Surrounding their appearances at Gainseville's The Fest, Long Island post-hardcore band Sainthood Reps will be doing some fall tour dates with I Am the Avalanche, including one in NYC and one in NJ. The NYC show happens on October 24 at Knitting Factory, and the NJ show happens on November 4 at Asbury Lanes. Tickets to see them at the Knit go on sale Saturday (8/17) at 10 AM, and tickets to see them at the Lanes are not on sale yet, but you can check ticketweb for updates. All dates are listed below.

Sainthood Reps released their debut full length, Monoculture, back in 2011, and they've since put out a split with Weatherbox earlier this year on Topshelf Records. The newish track, "Deadlines," sees the band pushing their post-hardcore sound further into the '90s alt-rock realm that was hinted at on their album. Stream that track and watch the video for "Monoculture" below.

Meanwhile, Sainthood Reps are kicking off a tour with Brooklyn's A Great Big Pile of Leaves in Baltimore today (8/14). That tour doesn't hit NYC, but you can catch AGBPOL in their home city when they play The Bell House (8/23) with mewithoutYou (tickets) and The Studio at Webster Hall (10/21) with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (tickets).

All dates are listed, along with that song stream and video, below...
