SPEEDY ORTIZ Extend Tour, Share Single

SPEEDY ORTIZ Extend Tour, play shows with Tune yards, Perfect Pussy, the tour starts June 12thin Chapel Hill, NC, their LP Real Hair in now out on Car Park

Speedy Ortiz are extending their never-ending tour schedule to include another string of dates in North America.  The band also put the finishing touches on a new single that will be released via Adult Swim on July 14 as part of their annual singles series!  Check below for the most recent list of dates. 

On Real Hair, the band sets a course between the knotty discord of debut album Major Arcana and the pop bonafides of the preceding Sports EP. Recorded and mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Radiohead), the new EP finds them subtly adding new techniques to their songbook. Guitarists Sadie Dupuis and Matt Robidoux bring on additional guitar effects to color the roundabout feel of “Oxygal,” while bassist Darl Ferm and drummer Mike Falcone hit hard to deliver the jump-in-the-pit urgency of “American Horror”.

From the vocal melodies to the no-nonsense guitar turns, drawing inspiration from contemporary Top 40 and R&B radio in addition to their regular arsenal of guitar rock. Dupuis’ lyrics continue to address concerns about identity, representation, and their misalignment, this time from a new angle: “While the last album was kind of a breakup jam, these songs are a lot more introspective-myself dealing with and talking to and making sense of myself,” she says.
