tours announced: Descendents, Adolescents, Sinai Vessel, more
The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
Punk legends Descendents recently announced a tour in support of their great 2016 comeback album Hypercaffium Spazzinate. Most of the dates don't happen for a while but you can catch them at Atlantic City Beer & Music Fest this Friday night.
Speaking of veteran punk bands that played Travis Barker's Musink Fest earlier this month, Cali punk vets the Adolescents will release new album, Cropduster, on July 7, and that's its awesome cover art at the top of this post. Still featuring founding members Tony Reflex and Steve Soto, The Adolescents will be on tour this summer, including a NYC show at Brooklyn Bazaar on June 23 with Electric Frankenstein. All dates are here.
Indie/alt-rock vets Snow Patrol have a new album on the way and they just announced NYC and LA shows, in addition to their upcoming European tour.
THE LSD TOUR
With a name like "The LSD Tour" you might be expecting something led by Flaming Lips or Butthole Surfers, but actually it's the first letters in the first names of three country/folk vets Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam. Newer band King Leg (who Yoakam has produced) are also playing, and tour dates include Colorado's Red Rocks and NYC's Beacon Theatre.
Chattanooga, TN-based emo-ish indie rockers Sinai Vessel released their great debut album Brokenlegged on Tiny Engines last year, and they'll be supporting it on a lengthy tour this spring. The tour includes a NYC show on April 29 at Trans-Pecos with Paear, a TBA Asbury Park show, and more. All dates are listed HERE. Stream Brokenlegged on Bandcamp.
THE ATLAS MOTH
Chicago psychedelic metal band The Atlas Moth recently released their great Coma Noir, which is perhaps their heaviest album yet without losing any of their trippy side. They recently went on an East Coast tour in support of it, and now they've announced another string of dates which hits Vancouver, Portland, LA, Phoenix, Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, and more. All dates are listed HERE. They announced the tour with this video:
Anti-folk vet Kimya Dawson lives on the West Coast now but she's returning to her former hometown of NYC for a couple shows here and other dates in the area.
Led by Chloé Soldevila, Montreal psych artist Anemone, who are named after a Brian Jonestown Massacre song, are a bit like Stereolab but with more groovy ’60s baroque pop and less situationalist politics. They're touring on their way back from SXSW and have East Coast dates in Asheville, NY (3/22), DC (3/23) and NYC's Alphaville on 3/24 with Video Age and Hypoluxo before crossing back into Canada.
THE QUEERS / THE DICKIES
Ramones and Beach Boys worshippers The Queers are hitting the road with LA punk OGs The Dickies on the West Coast this week, and on the East Coast in June.
Long-running Chicago punks the Dwarves are supporting their new album Take Back The Night on tour this year.
The UK electronic maestro hasn't announced a full North American tour yet in support of his forthcoming Singularity, but he did add a second Brooklyn show which happens after his appearance at David Lynch's Festival of Disruption.
Annie Hart's old band Au Revoir Simone are also playing Festival of Disruption but before that she's going to play the BV-presented Girl Ray show at Union Hall this weekend and then has dates with UK group Fujiya & Miyagi, as well as appearances at Canadian Music Week and Moogfest.
ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS
Rock legend Eric Burdon and his current version of The Animals are playing North American shows this spring.
