* Tour begins next Tuesday (Aug 26 – Sep 29)
* Shows with The Gaslight Anthem, Polar Bear Club, Samiam and American Steel
* Finishing up new full-length for Asian Man Records
O Pioneers!!! (Houston, TX) will be leaving for a month-long tour of the U.S. beginning next Tuesday, August 26th.
The trip will take them westward to California, back through parts of the Midwest and will eventually wrap up with a week throughout the Southeast and Texas with The Gaslight Anthem. The band will also be playing shows with Polar Bear Club, Samiam and American Steel.
Additionally, O Pioneers!!! are currently booking a week-long tour in October with Bridge And Tunnel as both bands make their way to The Fest in Gainesville. More info on those dates soon…
In other news, the band has just finished recording their sophomore full-length, Neon Creeps, which should be out sometime in November on Asian Man Records. They will also be contributing a song to a split seven inch with Mike Park on Suburban Home Records.
And finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t make some snarky comment about how the punk rock trail blazed by O Pioneers!!! over the past two years is littered with a ridiculous amount of vinyl – most of which Mitch Clem has provided artwork for. So I’m just going to point out that if you own all of them, you are a very dedicated fan, but perhaps you should take a closer look at this obsession with seven inches that has ruined your life and emptied your bank account. It’s a sickness, dude.
