Boston duo Vundabar have announced a spring UK / EU headline tour which includes a date at The Portland Arms on May 11th, tickets go on sale here from Jan 24th. The news was coupled with the release of a new video for latest single, ‘Acetone’, which is lifted from their ‘Smell Smoke’ album which drops next week.
The sludge-indie band have built a massive following through non-stop touring and their signature brand of jittery, rambunctious post-punk, yet much of their music hints at something darker beneath the surface.
Having just wrapped up a two month Autumn/Winter US tour with The Frights and Hockey Dad, Vundabar are about to embark on their Spring North American headline tour with support from Ratboys, which includes a stop through SXSW, before heading over to Europe and the UK.
The duo are set to release their brand new album ‘Smell Smoke’ on February 23rd 2018, which has already received acclaim from Pitchfork, Drownedinsound, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, and more. The record, (which includes singles Acetone premiered recently on Noisey, and haunting slacker-pop track Diver, shared via The Fader), is an exercise in dealing with songwriter Brandon Hagen’s experience of taking care of a loved one who suffered a severe illness.
