The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.
King Krule and Porches collaborator Okay Kaya is touring this year in support of her debut album Both. She's got an August run opening for Amen Dunes (who has a great new album out), followed by a headlining show in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 9/26. All dates here. Watch the recently-released video for "Vampire" from Both:
THUNDER DREAMER / WILD PINK
Thunder Dreamer and Wild Pink are two bands who mix heartland rock with DIY indie/emo, so this tour is a very well-matched pairing. Thunder Dreamer are supporting last year's Capture (6131), while Wild Pink will be supporting the upcoming Yolk In The Fur, which drops July 20 via Tiny Engines. All dates (including Trans-Pecos in Ridgewood, Queens on 8/8) here.
Canadian band Alvvays will be on tour soon, including a show opening for The War on Drugs at Hollywood Bowl, and have just added a third night at Brooklyn's Warsaw with Snail Mail and Hatchie. We've got a presale for that third Warsaw show happening Thursday morning.
Those three shows with Alvvays are not the only NYC dates for Australian dreampop artist Hatchie, as she'll play PItchfork's music-and-beer extravaganza, Octfest, and a headline show at Baby's All Right. She also just announced a full North American tour, so the rest of the country can catch her, too.
Dark-n-dubby punkpunk combo Exploded View, which features Anika and Mexico City-based musicians Hugo Quezada (Robota) and Martin Thulin (Crocodiles), will release their second album this fall, and will be on tour as well.
ADVANCE BASE / GIA MARGARET
Bedroom pop vet Owen Ashworth, who used to go by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and now goes by Advance Base, is hitting the road later this year. Many dates are with Gia Margaret, whose upcoming debut album There's Always Glimmer comes out on July 27 via Ashworth's Orindal Records. That includes the Brooklyn show on 9/26 at Baby's All Right. All dates here.
DYING FETUS / INCANTATION / GATECREEPER / GENOCIDE PACT
These four Relapse Records bands are releasing a split 12" and touring together.
WAR ON WOMEN
Raging feminist punks War On Women are about to resume touring this week, including DC, two tristate area shows, and more.
MOM JEANS / JUST FRIENDS / AWAKEBUTSTILLINBED / RETIREMENT PARTY
California emo/punk band Mom Jeans are going on a headlining tour in support of their upcoming album Puppy Love, which drops on July 3 via Counter Intuitive Records (US) and Big Scary Monsters (UK/EU). So far they're streaming two tracks from it, "Sponsor Me Tape" and "Season 9 Ep 2-3," and you can hear those below. If you're going to this tour, we especially recommend catching awakebutstillinbed, whose debut album is one of the most promising emo debuts of 2018 and whose live show is even better. All dates (including Brooklyn's MHOW on 11/2 and NJ's Asbury Lanes on 11/3) here. There's also a leg with Shortly instead of awakebutstillinbed and Retirement Party.
