Philadelphia indie rock trio GOOD OLD WAR announces new US tour dates, beginning May 1st at SUNY Oneonta in New York where they will support fun. with Person L opening shows. The band will appear at the Bamboozle festival in East Rutherford, NJ on May 2nd, before kicking off a several-week tour on May 20th in Philadelphia, PA with Yukon Blonde and Audra Mae. Full tour dates below.
GOOD OLD WAR is gearing up for the release of their self-titled album, which arrives June 1st on Sargent House. They recently played several shows at the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX and completed a short run of dates with Circa Survive.
GOOD OLD WAR’s sophomore release is the result of several winter months spent holed up in a remote house in the Pocono Mountains, where band mates Keith Goodwin, Dan Schwartz and Tim Arnold crafted this earnest, original collection of songs in near-isolation. The album explores weightier topics such as love, loss and addiction, and the band experimented with new instruments, techniques and conventions to push the boundaries of their familiar indie rock/folk territory.
Since their conception two years ago, GOOD OLD WAR has shared the stage with The Gaslight Anthem, Heartless Bastards, Anthony Green, RX Bandits and The Honorary Title. Their single “Coney Island” enjoyed Triple-A airplay and the video was in heavy rotation on MTVu.
