stream Dikembe’s new album ‘Hail Something’
Gainesville's Dikembe are following 2014's Mediumship (Tiny Engines) with a new album, Hail Something, on July 12 via Death Protector (US), Dog Knights (UK), and Lost Boy (AUS). We posted "Just Explode" off the album back in May, and now we're premiering a stream of the full thing.
Hail Something hearkens back to the mid/late '90s era of bands combining pop punk and emo and keeping things raw production-wise. If you dig things like Four Minute Mile or Through Being Cool, you'll probably have a place in your heart for Hail Something. You can check it out below.
As mentioned, Dikembe are playing shows with Iron Chic and Slingshot Dakota, including a Brooklyn show with ROMP on July 19 at Aviv. Tickets for that show are on sale now. There's also a Long Island show the next day.
Those two shows with Iron Chic are just two tops on Slingshot and Dikembe's tour. All dates are listed below.
