Boston-based musician and songwriter Anjimile released their debut LP, Giver Taker, in 2020 via Father/Daughter Records, and followed it with Reunion, an orchestral reimagining of the album's songs, earlier this year. Now they've announced their first tour, happening this fall on the East Coast.
HAZING OVER / FOR YOUR HEALTH
Back in 2019, For Your Health and Shin Guard put out one of the best screamo releases in recent memory, the Death of Spring split. Since then, both bands have significantly grown. For Your Health released their debut album In Spite Of on Twelve Gauge earlier this year, and it's much more of a genre-defying post-hardcore record than anything they'd released prior. Shin Guard changed their name to Hazing Over and embraced metalcore and deathcore influences on their new EP Pestilence, which came out earlier this year on Acrobat Unstable. The two bands played shows together to celebrate Death of Spring's release, and they'll now do another tour this fall of the East Coast and Midwest where they'll be joined, at various points, by Callous Daoboys, Snag, and Your Spirit Dies.
TIGERS JAW & SOUL GLO (OPENING FOR CIRCA SURVIVE)
Tigers Jaw and Soul Glo have been announced as openers for Circa Survive's upcoming Blue Sky Noise tour, which was rescheduled to 2022 after being planned for 2020 (which would have been the album's 10th anniversary).
