Seattle indie pop bands Telekinesis and Say Hi have both announced new albums and a tour together.

The tour hits NYC on October 21 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/19) at noon. The tour starts a couple months after Say Hi wrap up their tour with Death Cab for Cutie. All dates are listed below.

Telekinesis' new album is called Ad Infinitum, and it's due out September 18 via Merge. Lead single "In a Future World" is a big-sounding, synth-driven song, and you can stream that (via KEXP) below. Album trailer and artwork also below.

Say Hi's new album comes out the same day via Barsuk, and it's called Bleeders Digest. Its first single, "Creatures of the Night," is also a synthy song, and can be streamed below. Main member Eric Elbogen tells KEXP the song's "about two lovable vampire-roommates," and that the album's the sequel to 2006's vampire-themed Impeccable Blahs. (Though it follows last year's Endless Wonder.) Artwork and tracklist below too.
