While we’re on the subject of outstanding releases to look forward to this spring, consider this your PSA: the sophomore record from Cayetana is going to blow your minds. On New Kind of Normal, the Philly punk trio expands its sound into more simmering and atmospheric zones than we’ve heard from it in the past, while simultaneously kicking out some of the most revved-up anthems of its catalog.
The band treated us to a rooftop performance a couple sunny Saturdays ago, and we’ll have that video — along with an interview — for the next installment of The Key Presents. For now, we bring you an exciting piece of tour news.
Last year, Cayetana went out on its first tour outside the United States with the excellent Melbourne trio Camp Cope — it went so smashingly, the two bands released a split 7″ to commemorate the run, and this summer Cayetana is returning the favor by bringing Camp Cope on a short series of dates along the east coast.
Joining them are Worriers, the anthemic punk outfit of Lauren Denitzio, which you can learn more about in their recent interview with our Rob Huff. There’s no Philly date — though Cayetana does have a stacked record release party at The Church on May 5th — but the Camp Cope tour will hit Lizard Lounge in Lancaster on July 7th and tickets / more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Check out the full run of dates below, and watch Cayetana’s video for “Mesa.”
