Wavves + Best Coast Announce Joint ‘Summer Is Forever II’ Tour + Split Single
The two bands, who have been frequent collaborators, first joined forces for the inaugural Summer Is Forever jaunt in 2011. Summer Is Forever II will launch on Feb. 11 in Austin, and the majority of its North American dates will be all-ages shows. Cherry Glazerr will serve as the opening act for many of the dates before the tour wraps up on March 5 in Anaheim, Calif. Reference the complete itinerary and tour poster at the bottom of the page.
The first Summer Is Forever tour coincided with a Wavves-Best Coast split single, and that will be the case once again. Wavves frontman Nathan Williams recently announced a subscription service through his label Ghost Ramp. Launching in January, Ghost Ramp Monthly participants will begin receiving 7- and 12-inches, merchandise and more. The very first goodie is another split single featuring tracks from Wavves and Best Coast. The following month, subscribers will get another split single, this time featuring cuts from Wavves and Cloud Nothings. In March, fans will be treated to So Serene from Sweet Valley, Williams' other band with his brother.
Ghost Ramp Monthly is $35 per month for U.S. residents and $50 per month for international subscribers. Check it out right here.
Wavves dropped their fifth full-length V in October, while Best Coast returned with California Nights back in May.
