Philly riffers Sheer Mag will release their second 7" EP via Katorga Works later this year. Like last year's debut, it's greasy, sneery, late-'70s style rock n' roll: think Thin Lizzy, The Runaways or The Undertones. You can stream "Button Up" from the new EP as well as the whole first EP below.

The band, which features former members of Sirs and The Shakes will be on tour for the next two months, including NYC on Thursday (3/12) at 538 with Honey and Nancy. They're also playing the NY's All Right at The Acheron on April 18 with Bad Noids, Tapehead, and Gowanus Mutant Kommandos (tickets). And then they'll open for Ex Hex (a good sonic match, there) at Le Poisson Rouge on April 23 with Kuroma, and Roya playing as well (tickets).

All dates, including requisite stops in Austin during SXSW, are listed below...
