Morning Hype! Black Lips + Natural Child Tour Dates!

Morning Hype! Black Lips + Natural Child Tour Dates!

Welcome to 2014 everybody! Hope you all had a safe and happy New Years and for those on the East Coast like myself, hope you stayed warm and avoided the brunt of a couple pretty shitty weeks of weather. It only gets better from here on out and with some of the show announcements I've been hearing in the last few days my optimism has definitely been piqued. Gotta love it when two of your personal favs are both in the running for the most anticipated albums of the year come January but it's nothing short of boner inducing when said bands announce a run of dates together. This is what exactly what Atlanta's Black Lips and Nashville's Natural Child have gone and done, with the latter providing support for East Coast and Southern dates, starting in Richmond VA April 14th and looping towards Austin Psych Fest for the first weekend of May. Fellow ATLers Deerhunter provide support for a Black Lips hometown show and The Coathangers are opening the West Coast dates. Both Natural Child and The Black Lips have released southern tinged singles from their upcoming releases and you can hear them below as well as see all the tour dates, which I have shamelessly poached from Pitchfork...
