San Francisco punk rock outfit SPIRITUAL CRAMP have announced plans for a tour of the Eastern U.S. alongside DC post-punks Bacchae, taking place in November 2021. The tour follows a string of California dates earlier this month that saw the band return to the stage for the first time since the pandemic halted all plans in 2020.
The band also recently detailed a forthcoming EP, Here Comes More Bad News, out October 6th digitally. Vinyl 7″ copies of the EP have sold out at their recent shows and a 2nd press is already in the works.
The EP was recorded with longtime collaborator Grace Coleman and captures the band at their best, having spent the interceding time off honing their craft and offering up arguably their most dialed in music to date. In true DIY fashion, the band are self-releasing the EP (in conjunction with guitarist Stewart Kuhlo’s own Industry Standards imprint).
As part of a fundraising effort for Stereogum in 2020, Spiritual Cramp captured a live in-studio performance covering The Hives’ “Walk Idiot Walk” which has also been made public today. Watch above and check out the band’s recent music video for the song “Earth To Mike”.
