EVERY TIME I DIE / TURNSTILE / ANGEL DU$T / VEIN
In addition to opening some dates on Fall Out Boy's tour, Buffalo metalcore vets Every Time I Die are going on a much more appealing headlining tour with opening sets from three killer boundary-pushing hardcore bands: Turnstile (who released the great TIME & SPACE this year), Angel Du$t (who share a member with Turnstile and are still riding high off 2016's great Rock The Fuck On Forever), and Vein (who released the great errorzone this year). The tour begins in Chicago, then heads to the West Coast, then wraps up in the Northeast with shows in Baltimore, Philly, and Pittsburgh. All dates here.
GANG GANG DANCE (with INTERPOL and more)
Gang Gang Dance have one again added to their tour schedule behind this year's very enjoyable Kazuashita (their first album in seven years). Their schedule now includes another NYC show: opening the free Interpol show at House of Vans on August 24 (which also has Honduras on the bill). RSVP for that show opens Wednesday (8/15). They also play Warm Up at Long Island City's MoMA PS1 on 9/1 with Discwoman, Lizzo, The Italian New Wave, Logan Takahashi (of Teengirl Fantasy) and more TBA (tickets). All GGD dates here.
Having just played a free SummerStage show with Porches last night, Sunflower Bean will be on tour for pretty much the rest of 2018, including a stretch opening for Interpol, a show at NJ's Asbury Lanes in October, and dates in Asia and the UK in November. Sunflower Bean will wrap up their 2018 with a homecoming show at Brooklyn's Warsaw on December 7. Head here for all dates and tickets.
