The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
BARONESS / DEAFHEAVEN
The co-headlining Baroness / Deafheaven tour (with Zeal & Ardor opening) starts tonight (3/8) in Houston and then heads to the West Coast before eventually making its way East (including NYC & NJ shows). Deafheaven will be supporting last year's great Ordinary Corrupt Human Love (and hopefully also playing their recently-released great non-album track "Black Brick"), while Baroness have an anticipated new album on the way. We still don't know what that album is called or when it's coming out, but they did just release a teaser for a new song and said they'd be playing it on this tour, so that's exciting! Check it out:
Compton-based electronic artist Channel Tres is currently on tour opening for Robyn (including tonight at Madison Square Garden), and after that, he'll be joining Vince Staples on the road, before a few North American headlining shows in May. These newly-added dates include Brooklyn's Elsewhere on 5/21, and stops in Cambridge, Washington D.C., Detroit, Bakersfield, and Mayer, AZ (an appearance at FORM Aroscanti 2019 on 5/11). Check here for all upcoming dates, and view Channel Tres' video for recent single "Brilliant Ni**a" below.
Soulful Houston-based band The Suffers released their last LP Everything Here last year, and they've recently added more US tour dates behind the record. Aside from some festival appearances, such as Boise's Treefort Fest later this month, the band will be hitting cities along the West Coast and southern US, including LA, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Austin, New Orleans, Knoxville, San Diego, and more. All dates here, and watch the band's new video for Everything Here highlight "All I Want To Do" below.
Psych pop songwriter Kishi Bashi's newest album Omoiyari (his first album since 2016's Sonderlust) drops on May 31, and in celebration, he'll be doing a series of US shows surrounding the record's release. The tour begins in Athens, GA, and includes stops in Brooklyn (Murmrr Theatre on 6/19), Boston, LA, Washington D.C., Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland. Tickets to all dates can be found here, and hear newest single "Summer of '42" below.

SOUL REBELS (NYC SPECIAL GUESTS ADDED)
