Grave Babies Touring, Releasing New Single

    Along with prepping the release of a new single, scuzz pop rockers Grave Babies are kicking off a lengthy tour tonight. Well, it becomes lengthy toward the end of August, when the Seattle group will stay on the road for a nearly one month and a half. They’ll be playing with some like-minded acts to boot, including Denmark-based punks Iceage and Brooklyn noise pop outfit Xray Eyeballs. In the midst of all this, Grave Babies will also put out that aforementioned single, which features “Pleasures” and “Deathwish.” This is the first new material we’ve heard from the guys since 2009’s Deathface.
