The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
It's official: the post-Gabriel, hit machine lineup of Genesis (Phil Collins, Mike Rutheford, Tony Banks) are back with their first tour in 13 years. They're calling it "the Last Domino" and so far it's just UK / Ireland dates in late fall, including Dublin, Belfast, Liverpool, Leeds, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, and Newcastle. Surely they'll bring "Invisible Touch" and "That's All" to the land of confusion that is North America...next year? Stay tuned. All dates are here.
Parquet Courts are presumably working on a new album but have a few tour dates lined up for the spring and summer. They'll be out with Public Practice in April, and then out with P.E. in May (including Asbury Park's Stone Pony on 5/27), and then Midwest shows in July including Cleveland, Louisville, Minneapolis with Cate Le Bon and a stop at Pitchfork Fest. Head here for all dates.
P.E. (PILL + EATERS)
Brooklyn group P.E. — aka the combined forces of ex-Pill members Veronica Torres, Jonathan Campolo, and Benjamin Jaffe, plus Eaters’ Jonathan Schenke and Bob Jones — release their debut album, Person, this Friday. In addition to those shows with Parquet Courts, they'll also be out with Montreal's Pottery and play a record release show this Friday in Brooklyn with Gauche and more.
Body Count's new album Carnivore comes out this week, and they continue to expand their touring schedule in support of it. In addition to the previously announced NYC show on March 15 at Webster Hall with Cro-Mags and END (tickets), Ice T & co will now also play LA's Fonda Theatre on May 20 (tickets). They also play Rocklahoma and several Europe shows and festivals, which are listed here.
Maryland rapper Yung Manny has been dropping a string of singles and EPs that show off his unconventional flow, and it's the kinda thing where whether or not you like it, you know you're listening to something new and weird and different and very attention-grabbing. He's got some tour dates coming up, including Silver Spring's Fillmore on 4/17, Atlanta's Masquerade on 5/8, NYC's SOB's on 5/14, Virginia Beach's Elevation on 5/22, and Richmond's Broadberry on 5/23.
Jenny Hval will be on tour in April supporting last year's great The Practice of Love, stopping in Chicago, Toronto, NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. The NYC shows are at Brooklyn's National Sawdust and she's just added a third: a late show on April 7. (The 4/6 and and early 4/7 shows are sold out.) All dates are here.
Half Waif will soon be on tour supporting her upcoming album The Caretaker (out 3/27 on ANTI-). Her Brooklyn release show at Public Records is sold out, and she's added another NYC show to the end of her May tour, stopping at Bowery Ballroom on May 24. That tour includes stops in Boston, Northampton, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, DC, Philly, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Santa Ana, and L.A. All dates are here.
Savak, the band that includes members of Obits, Holy Fuck and more are gearing up to release new album Rotting Teeth in the Horse's Mouth in April and will be on tour this year, including dates with Archers of Loaf. They'll also play Brooklyn's Alphaville on Thursday with Jeanines, Special Friend and Psycho Bat, and have their record release show on April 11 at Union Pool. Head here for all dates.
Odd Future associate Juto hasn't gone on a proper tour yet, but after playing Camp Flog Gnaw last year and his own LA show earlier this year, he's now set to come to NYC's Baby's All Right on May 28. Watch his video for "FAF" from last year's Wool EP:
THE GOOD LIFE
It’s a good time for fans of the Cursive family tree. Not only are Criteria back, Tim Kasher‘s band The Good Life are celebrating the “Sweet 16″ of their most-loved album, their 2004 concept LP Album of the Year, on tour this year.
Brighton, UK band Porridge Radio will release their new album Every Bad next week and will be in the U.S. shortly after, playing Los Angeles, SXSW (including a BrooklynVegan day party) and a BV-presented NYC show on 3/25 at Elsewhere.
Lightning Bug, the Brooklyn shoegaze/dreampop group led by Audrey Kang, have singed with Fat Possum who are reissuing last year's October Song on vinyl. They'll be playing SXSW with some stops in other cities on the way home.
