The group will celebrate on October 29th with a takeover of Rough Trade Records in New York, featuring an album play-through, a meet and greet, poster giveaways, and more. The event kicks off at 6:30pm- the first 20 attendees will also get passes to join fellow fans at a private event that night featuring a brief Q&A session with the group and Mass Appeal’s Sacha Jenkins, followed by a screening of perennial NYC classic The Warriors in a 92-seat movie theater.

Additional dates and performers will be announced for forthcoming show in Atlanta, Philadelphia and a return to New York.”
