Beginning today, Toronto punk band Junior Battles will join Houston’s O Pioneers!!! for two weeks’ worth of shows throughout the U.S. and Canada (May 06 – 22).
The quartet is touring support of its latest self-titled 7″ release on Square Up Records, as well as an upcoming split 7″ between the two touring bands via Kiss Of Death. And as if playing shows and releasing records together wasn’t incestuous enough, for the duration of the tour, 3/4 of Junior Battles will provide their considerable talents as the backing band for O Pioneer’s front man, Eric Solomon.
Details of the split release are still forthcoming, but the self-titled 7″can be procured from Square Up. Limited to a pressing of 500, the record is available on green / white (150) and grey marble (350) colorways.
Additionally, the 4-song effort can be downloaded for free from If You Make It. Free is good, right?
Recommended for fans of Jawbreaker, Green Day, Bad Religion and Saves The Day.
