Japanese Breakfast releasing new LP in July, touring with (Sandy) Alex G
Alex G -- who now officially goes by (Sandy) Alex G (presumably not to be confused with the other Alex G) -- recently announced his new album Rocket (due 5/19 via Domino) and some release shows. He has now released another single from Rocket, "Proud," and revealed that his two July shows are part of a lengthy tour with Japanese Breakfast and Cende.
That tour includes his Brooklyn show on July 6 at Music Hall of Williamsburg (tickets). His sold-out Brooklyn show on May 18 at the Park Church Co-Op will be opened by True Blue.
UPDATE (5/1): MHOW is now sold out too, and a Bowery Ballroom show for July 7 with Japanese Breakfast and Cende was added. Tickets go on sale May 3 at 10 AM.
Alex also plays Quinnipiac University's WQAQ Spring Fest on April 8 with Pinegrove, Crying, and Half Waif. All of his tour dates are listed below.
Japanese Breakfast, who we named one of the best new(ish) rock bands of 2016 off the strength of their 2016 album Psychopomp, first tours with their Dead Oceans labelmates Slowdive, including two shows at the soon-to-open Brooklyn Steel. Main JB member Michelle Zauner was just interviewed by Slowdive's Rachel Goswell on the Talkhouse podcast, and Michelle dropped the info that her new album will be out in July. Listen to that interview below.
Cende (who share members with LVL UP and Porches) recently announced a new album, #1 Hit Single, coming May 22 via Double Double Whammy.
