Jump Back :: The Week in Review

Patrons of Punk re-embraced a re-post of an article written a few weeks back…before the meltdown…about a band from Phoenix called Moovalya. I felt a bit bad as it was our technical difficulties that caused the article to disappear for a bit. More post-hardcore punk followed on Tuesday  with Thurdeen’s review of Sleep City’s debut EP entitled Still Breathing.  News of The Joy Formidable’s Spring Tour landed on the front page mid-week as the band begins final preparations to support their debut album entitled The Big Roar which is due to drop early next week…March 14th to be exact.  We also got some good news out of the Criminal Records camp when we learned that The Exits were, in fact, still very much alive and heading back into the studio to record some new stuff. I’m not sure who pissed Thurdeen off this week but it’s clear that he has been dialing up the punk to get in touch with his inner angry child. The theme continues with his review of Kesshin, a french al-rock/punk band from France whose new EP entitled For Too Long Now has us all quite smitten. The music of Byzanite closes out the week for us as we learn that chiptune is not actually created by chipmunks (sorry Alvin) but by a step-sequencer hooked up to a GameBoy. What? Exactly. But ’tis good my friends so check it out.

The Joy Formidable's Spring Tour

Given the bevy of US tour dates this Spring, if you miss seeing The Joy Formidable live it’s because you didn’t really want to see them in the first place. Their coast to coast tour kicks off at The Earl in Hotlanta just (2) days after the official start of Spring on March 22nd. From there they hit the rest of the east coast before making their way across the Heartland of America, across to the left coast and then back again to finish up in NYC. This tour also includes stops at SXSW and Coachella.
You can check out the complete tour listing, purchase tickets and pre-order a digital copy of their debut album The Big Roar (scheduled to drop on March 14th) all from their website. Can’t wait to see their show at the Black Cat in DC!
