Woods Announce Hefty Summer Tour with Dungen and Kurt Vile

Woods Announce Hefty Summer Tour with Dungen and Kurt Vile
Brooklyn psych folk purveyors Woods just released their latest LP, Songs of Shame, on their own Woodsist Records, and have now announced a burly summer tour in support of the album.

The tour kicks off in Brooklyn on July 4, where they'll take part in the second day of the Woodsist/Captured Tracks festival, a showcase of talent from the incredible wealth of lo-fi and post-punk bands related to the Brooklyn scene. Performers at the two-day festival include Vivian Girls, Tyvek, Blank Dogs, Psychedelic Horseshit, caUSE co-MOTION!, Thee Oh Sees and Toronto's own Little Girls, among many others. If you're interested in making the trek, you can nab your tickets here.

The following week, Woods will play New York's Bowery Ballroom as a part of Wavves' first post-meltdown experience. If that doesn't end in any major conflict, the dudes will continue on their tour of the States, eventually hitting up Montreal and Toronto in early August, then hooking up with fellow psych brains Dungen for a slew of U.S. dates and a stop at Vancouver's Richard's on Richards on September 2, when recent Matador signee Kurt Vile will also be included on the bill.
