According to their website, the band will play the following shows at the end of the year (with more to be announced soon):

  • 10-22 Athens, GA - 40 Watt Club
  • 10-23 Athens, GA - 40 Watt Club
  • 10-25 Asheville, NC - Thomas Wolfe Auditorium
  • 11-28 Taipei, Taiwan - Hostess Club Festival
  • 12-01 Tokyo, Japan - Hostess Club Festival
