still from Weatherbox's "Pagan Baby" video

Weatherbox put out one of the year's better rock albums so far with Flies In All Directions, and they've since announced that they'll support it on a tour with Gainesville's Dikembe this summer. That tour hits NYC on July 17 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Weatherbox also just put out a video for the album's punky opening track "Pagan Baby." The black and white video begins with shots of the band performing, only to slowly zoom out and show us we're in fact watching someone else watch a video of the band on their iMac. (Is it a comment on how we currently consume music?) See it for yourself, via Entertainment Weekly, below.

Meanwhile, Dikembe, who are about to release a split with the reunited Jazz June on 7/1 via Tiny Engines/Topshelf, have announced that their next full length, Mediumship, will be out this August via Tiny Engines. Its first single, "Hood Rat Messiah," is a raw dose of loud-quiet-loud emo that hearkens back to the genre's late '90s/early '00s period. You can stream that, with the LP artwork and tracklist, below.

List of Weatherbox/Dikembe dates, all streams and more, below...
