Today we have an exciting new batch of touring announcements from This Wild Life, Modest Mouse and more—plus footage of Incubus on Conan, and a new video from Obey The Brave! Check out the news you might have missed today below!
The two groups will join forces on June 9 at The Paramount in Seattle for Cascadia Resists: An Acoustic Evening In Support Of The ACLU and Planned Parenthood. They will be joined by local singer/songwriter Sera Cahoone.
The event goes on sale May 12 at 10 a.m. PST, and tickets will be available here. All proceeds will be going to both the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
“We as Death Cab For Cutie are appalled by the divisive, xenophobic and misogynistic agenda the Trump Administration is attempting to implement in our country,” said Death Cab for Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard. “We are proud to be joining our friends The Decemberists and Sera Cahoone in support of both the ACLU and Planned Parenthood at this pivotal time in our nation's history.”
2. This Wild Life have unveiled their summer tour dates!
The LA duo are heading out on a series of North American dates this summer, further promoting their latest record, Low Tides.
The dates kick off on July first in Sarcramento, CA and wrap in in Vegas August 5. This Wild Life will then prepare for their October tour with Mayday Parade in Australia.
Singer and guitarist Kevin Jordan wants you to get as excited as he is for this tour!
“We're flipping this record cycle on its head and putting together a unique This Wild Life performance that is unlike anything we've ever done before,” Jordan says. “This Summer I'll be singing sad songs with a smile on my face, because through these experiences we've shared, I've come out from the other side stronger and happier than ever before. We want our fans to feel the same way, so this tour we will be getting you all involved in the performance itself. From playing instruments, singing along, all the way down to production, you will be a part of the show. We will be playing songs from the Heart Flip EP, Clouded, as well as Low Tides and we would like to invite you to join us for these special performances in beautiful venues across the United States (with a couple stops with our friends in Canada).”

4. Obey The Brave have premiered their new music video for “Drama.”
In anticipation of their upcoming release, Obey The Brave have put out a new video for their song “Drama!”
Due to be released on June 2 via Epitaph, Mad Season will be the Canadian group's third full-length. Frontman Alex Erian had the following to say about the track:
“Sonically and visually, this new song and video mark a new turn in our career. We stepped out of our comfort zone and drove ourselves to new limits, trying out different ideas while maintaining the heaviness and energy from our Young Blood days. As soon as I heard that riff, all I could hear in my head was Steve‘s voice over and over again. He and I have been writing and performing together in Despised Icon for 15 years. That chemistry definitely shines on this single��”
