>>> The always out-there Man Man will be kicking off a co-headlining tour with Murder by Death on February 7th. The tour, still in support of Life Fantastic, will wrap up right here on March 2nd at Union Transfer. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday but are available right now in presale form.
>>> Local punkers Pissed Jeans will release their fourth album (and third on Sub Pop), Honeys, on February 12. You can do all your pre-ordering over here.
>>> And, in other two-word-name bands where the first word starts with P, Purling Hiss will release Water on Mars on March 19, 2013. It is their first recording made outside of singer Mike Polizze’s home-recording station, and some new tracks will undoubtedly be played when PH opens for The War On Drugs at Johnny Brenda’s on NYE.
