Los Angeles-based duo Girlpool have been seeing tons of support over the last few months since they relocated from Philadelphia to LA at the end of last year, and it's with good reason. Their high-energy, raw sound and introspective lyrics is about as punk rock as indie rock gets, and they're carrying that momentum into 2015 with the release of their debut album Before the World was Big.

It drops on 1 June, and you can stream the title track below! They've also just announced an extensive UK and European tour that follows their US and Canada dates and finds them playing at a slew of festivals later on this summer. Tickets for the UK/EU run go on sale tomorrow!
