La Force, the solo project of Broken Social Scene vocalist Ariel Engle, recently shared the pretty, lightly psychedelic single "Lucky One" and you can check out the video for that below.

Tickets for both those shows are on sale now. The rest of her dates are in Canada and you can find them all here.
FOXING / RATBOYS / KISSISSIPPI
Foxing's highly anticipated new album Nearer My God comes out in August and they just added two very good openers to their upcoming tour: Ratboys (who released GN last year) and Kississippi (who released Sunset Blush this year). All dates here.
Beloved Long Island punks Latterman are reunited but their shows are still few and far between. They announced three dates for this August.
