This alternate version of the Teens Of Denial standout track was previewed earlier this week when the band performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (with some help in the horns department from The Roots).

Savages and Car Seat Headrest at Pitchfork Festival This Weekend

Chicago-Open-Air-2016-Lineup-Poster-2

(above - not a poster for the Pitchfork Festival)

Just a reminder for those attending this weekend's Pitchfork Festival in Chicago's Union Park that Savages are playing on the Green Stage Saturday at 4:15pm, while Car Seat Headrest are making their (domestic) P4K fest debut on the Red Stage Friday afternoon at 3:30pm. In addition, Car Seat Headrest are at the Empty Bottle Saturday night at midnight and while advance tickets are sold out, a limited number of tickets will be available at the door.

If the above events aren't to your liking, Disturbed, Korn, Breaking Benjamin, Drowning Pool, Asking Alexandria and some version of Page Hamilton's Helmet are taking part in a craft beer exposition in Bridgeview, IL this weekend. I'm told tickets are very much available (which is probably a familiar refrain whenever Drowning Pool are playing), so use that information as you see fit.

At the risk of being overly dramatic, our national nightmare of moderate length is finally over and the amended LP and CD versions of Car Seat Headrest's hotly anticipated / universally hailed 'Teens Of Denial' are either hitting your local record shop or your mailbox today (and if it's the latter, I certainly hope you ordered the CD, otherwise there could be some real problems cramming the LP inside). After taking Europe (or what's left of it) by storm, Car Seat Headrest kick off the next leg of North American touring with a free show tomorrow on Pier 16 of NYC's South Street Seaport as part of the Village Voice's 4 Knots Festival. Also appearing are Protomartyr and fledgling young hopefuls Guided By Voices (of whom we've heard promising things, apparently the main fella is considered somewhat prolific, you might even say 'Toledo-esque') and if you get there early enough, I'll be conducting a walking tour of the block former Matador receptionist Joe Gaer used to live on. The show is all-ages, though the walking tour not recommended for preteens or the emotionally immature.

Coming July 8 : Car Seat Headrest's 'Teens Of Denial' On LP & CD

You've all heard the tragic tale of how the LP/CD release of Car Seat Headrest's eagerly awaited 'Teens Of Denial' has been delayed for reasons we're kinda tired of repeating. Now, we're happy to announce that the light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train, but rather, a large truck carrying 2XLP and digipak CD copies of 'Teens Of Denial' that will only be destroyed if you opt to do it yourself with your bare hands. And we're very confident you won't want to do any such thing. FRIDAY JULY 8 is the day said light/truck/boxes will emerge from the darkness.
