Published Mar 26, 2015For this year's edition of Record Store Day, current Mint Records act Tough Age have opted to cover former Mint Records act cub for a full EP. The previously announced Tough Age Plays cub's Hot Dog Day will feature six songs, and along with its arrival, the group have now announced a West Coast tour.
Following an afternoon show at Vancouver's Neptoon Records on Record Store Day, the group will hop the border to kick off a West Coast trek with their labelmates Energy Slime, the project helmed by Vancouver pop prince Jay Arner and Jessica Delisle
Naturally dubbed the Tough Slime Tour (why not Energy Age?), the run sees both acts head to California and back, completing the trip with stops in Victoria and Vancouver.
Tough Age's full tour itinerary is available below. We're also happy to premiere another cub cover that sees the group take on the sunny, poppy "Flying Carpet." Listen below all those dates.
