Joanna Gruesome Announce 2014 UK Tour With Speedy Ortiz

Two DIY triumphs from different sides of the Atlantic are combining for a special tour.

Both sides of the Atlantic underground are being brought together for a forthcoming February 2014 tour. Joanna Gruesome - who just released their ‘Weird Sister’ debut and basically owned New York’s CMJ - and Massachusetts’ Speedy Ortiz combine for a six-date run of the UK.

Speedy Ortiz’s own ‘Major Arcana’ album came out Stateside earlier this year via Carpark Records. Listen to a highlight, ‘Tiger Tank’, below.

DIY’s recent interview with Joanna Gruesome had them declaring that ‘right now is the most vibrant time for DIY bands.’ They’re putting that statement to good use.
