Charlotte, North Carolina indie punk rockers LATE BLOOMER have announced a run of U.S. tour dates slated for mid-February. The recent 6131 Records signees are supporting their 2014 LP, Things Change, and have also been hard at work gearing up for their first proper 6131 release, likely to surface later this year.
Originally co-released by Self Aware Records, Lunchbox Records, and Tor Johnson Records, Things Change packs a unique combination of influences and songwriting unlike any of Late Bloomer’s contemporaries. Comparisons to the likes of Dinosaur Jr., Jawbox, and the work of Bob Mould feel fitting, but don’t fully capture the breadth of creativity or idiosyncratic nature of Late Bloomer’s dense yet hooky songs.
Things Change is available now for the first time on cassette via 6131 Records. Catch Late Bloomer on tour in February, see full list of dates below.
