One of the best debut albums of last year was Hunger for a Way Out by Boston's Sweeping Promises. It's 10 cuts of urgent, ultra-hooky post-punk-inspired pop that draws from groups like ESG, Sleater-Kinney and Liliput. There's not a mediocre song on it, and if you haven't checked the album out yet, you can stream it below.

Having released the album last summer, Sweeping Promises didn't get to tour at all for it, but they're making up for that this fall. Their extensive fall tour begins September 22 in Houston and includes stops in New Orleans, Memphis, Kansas City, Denver, Boise, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Tucson. A month later they'll ge out for more shows starting November 2 in Atlanta, and then hitting Carrboro, DC, Brooklyn, Philly, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Cincinnati, Chicago, Bloomington, Nashville, Dallas and San Antonio, All dates are listed below.

The Los Angeles show is at Zebulon on October 8 (tickets) and the Brooklyn show happens at Market Hotel on November 5 (tickets). Tickets go on sale Friday, June 25 at 10 AM local time.
