Cymbals Eat Guitars Book Upcoming Spring Tour

Cymbals Eat Guitars

Cymbals Eat Guitars

Cymbals Eat Guitars have booked an upcoming Spring tour with This Will Destroy You, and Slothrust and Split Single as support. The band’s third and latest LP, LOSE, was produced by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile), out now on CD and vinyl via Barsuk (US) and Tough Love Records (EU). Stream their music video for “Laramie” here.

Slothrust

Slothrust

Formed amidst the ashes of Leah Wellbaum’s solo project, entitled Slothbox, Slothrust was forged with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. Thanks to their adept jazz & blues backbone, Slothrust plays deceivingly clever rock with a relentless, punk-as-fuck aesthetic. Though commonly compared to Sonic Youth and Nirvana, Slothrust plays a trickier game than its grunge-revivalist peers. From tender to thrashing and from dark to dorky, Slothrust is a band at constant play with its sonic dynamics and emotional spectrum, yet still manages to weave in ear-worming, cathartic hooks. The band’s second full-length release, Of Course You Do, was released in February 2014 on Ba Da Bing as a follow-up to their 2012 self-released album, Feels Your Pain. Look out for their new LP in 2015!
