This November, Pittsburgh punks The Gotobeds will leave the warm comfort of their homes in Pittsburgh, PA to tour across North America and back again in support of their 2016 Sub Pop album, Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic.
The Cold November Rain Tour begins on November 2nd in Chicago, IL, with stops in Little Rock, Los Angeles, Seattle, and several other cities, finally ending November 21st in Milwaukee, WI. (see listing below) For the first eight of these shows, The Gotobeds will be accompanied by their close, personal friends in the very good band called Protomartyr.
In the bio for Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic (a bio, we should note, he was paid handsomely to write), Protomartyr’s Joe Casey offered the following endorsement of The Gotobeds’ live performances: “…the band’s live show is a testament to the cathartic nature of speed, skill, repetition, noise, and red stage lights.” And, The Gotobeds’ singer/guitarist Eli Kasan had this to say about the upcoming tour:
“The last time these two giants of rock met resulted in a near arrest for whatever you would call ‘intoxicated on psychedelic mushrooms, in a hotel, while watching sports bloopers at 5am.’ This time it’s PERSONAL, Best Western.”
Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic features “Real Maths/Too Much,” “Brass Not Rash,” “Bodies,” “Cold Gold (LA’s Alright),” and several other arguably excellent songs you can (and should) hear in this FULL ALBUM STREAM, and is available now for purchase right here.
