It’s been a while since we’ve heard from indie pop duo Mates Of State. Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel formed the band in Kansas in 1997 and released several albums throughout the aughts. Now based in Connecticut, Mates of State released their last full-length album, Mountaintops, in 2011, and returned briefly in 2015 with the You’re Going to Make It EP.

Now, it looks like Mates Of State may be up to something. There’s no official announcement yet, but the band added a few upcoming tour dates, including a show at Boot & Saddle on September 30. Tickets are on sale now; find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
