Big Ups announce summer tour with Metz

Big Ups have announced an upcoming summer tour with Metz starting July 27th as well as a handful of New York City shows that include dates with Pissed Jeans and Perfect Pussy. See below for the complete tour details.

Big Ups exploded onto the scene in late 2013 after releasing their single Goes Black. Big Ups’ approach to the punk genre incorporated facets of West Coast hardcore, politically-charged DC post-hardcore, classic UK punk, and at times, the sludge and noise of the ’90s era Touch And Go/Amphetamine Reptile scene; all of it filtered through singer Joe Galarraga’s frustrations and meditations on truth, faith, and science.

Their debut album ‘Eighteen Hours Of Static,’ the title being a reference to Carl Sagan’s Contact, released on Dead Labour (US) and Tough Love (UK), catapulted the band toward national awareness. In the fall of 2014, after months of touring, the band released their ‘Not Today/Rash’ single on the up and coming taste maker label Exploding In Sound. When not on the road, Big Ups enjoy beer, long walks on the beach, and recording new material. Listen to Goes Black via YouTube below, which is lifted from ‘Eighteen Hours Of Static’.
