NYC post-hardcore/noise rock vets Unsane are doing a ton of touring this year in continued support of last year's Sterilize.
Detroit's Protomartyr have a new EP which features The Breeders' Kelley Deal on the way and they're touring all over the place. Most of those shows are not in North America, however. They’ve currently got three U.S shows: The BrooklynVegan Northside Festival show at Elsewhere on June 9 with Deerhoof and more TBA (tickets), plus Seattle’s Upstream Music Festival on June 3 and L.A.’s FYF Fest on July 21. All tour dates here.
Alt/metal/punk/funk/etc vets Fishbone officially only have '80s/'90s-era members in their current lineup, and they have almost the entire original line up intact. They're touring this spring and summer.
THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS
John and John and the rest of the TMGB touring unit will be on the road this fall in support of their new LP, I Like Fun. Dates include a NYC show at Terminal 5. They'll also play Hudson, NY’s Clearwater Festival on July 16.
SHECK WES / VALEE
Two recent G.O.O.D. Music signees, Harlem's Sheck Wes and Chicago's Valee, are hitting the road together this year.
Russian producer Nina Kraviz is doing a good amount of touring this year, and though most of her dates are in Europe, she's got a few in the US including Detroit's Movement festival, LA's FYF festival, and an all-day Memorial Day (5/28) show at the Knockdown Center in Queens (tickets). The show goes from 2-10 PM and more acts are TBA. All dates HERE. Nina's only album is still her 2012 self-titled debut, but she's stayed active in many ways. She recently released video of her full Time Warp 2018 set and you can watch that here:
Brooklyn's Bodega will release their terrific debut album, Endless Scroll, on June 1 and will play a release show that day at Brooklyn's Sunnyvale. Right after that they'll head out on a short North American tour that stays mainly on the right half of the continent. You can also catch them in the UK and Europe. Dates are here.
'90s Britpop group Sleeper, led by the great Louise Wener, are back together and working on their first album in over two decades. They also just wrapped up a tour and will be back on the road in the fall.
Panda Bear is on tour now in support of his 2018 EP A Day With The Homies with his Animal Collective bandmate Geologist opening. The tour rolls through Brooklyn this Saturday (5/5) and there are still tickets available for that show. After this, Animal Collective are playing David Lynch's festival in Brooklyn and then playing Sung Tongs in full on tour. All dates for both Panda Bear solo and AnCo are here.
POWER TRIP / SHEER MAG
The awesome double billed tour of crossover thrash revivalists Power Trip and classic rock-inspired punks Sheer Mag recently began, and it lands in Brooklyn for two shows next week. Opening most dates are Fury and Red Death, who also have their own Brooklyn show together. Power Trip recently released the Opening Fire: 2008-2014 compilation and you can stream that here:
