Meat Wave announce tour dates (2015, 2016)

As the year comes to a close, Chicago trio Meat Wave, who released their album Delusion Moon this past September, are just getting started.
Kicking off in February, Meat Wave will make the trek west for the first time as a band, stopping in cities like Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, and more along the way. Support for the tour is TBD.
A blistering master class in abrasive post-punk made to feel poppy, Delusion Moon is the kind of get-in-your-head-and-stay-there record that propelled bands like Cloud Nothings, FIDLAR and Japandroids to worldwide success. Undoubtedly, it made Meat Wave an international force to be reckoned with, enhanced further by their stops at the esteemed Icelandic Airwaves festival in November, The Fest in Gainesville, FL in October, and Riot Fest in Chicago, IL in September.
Formed in 2011 by the trio of Chris Sutter (vocals/guitar), Joe Gac (bass) and Ryan Wizniak (drums), the three punk scene stalwarts came together and, just a year later, released its self-titled full-length debut. That first collection of songs was all it took for Meat Wave to start garnering attention, simultaneously referencing Hot Snakes, the disgruntled lyricism of Shellac and a little bit of The Jesus Lizard’s fire-spitting sneer just for good measure.
