Boston shoegaze greats Drop Nineteens release their first album in 30 years, Hard Light, in November, and they were scheduled to tour for it in October with Greg Mendez, Horse Jumper of Love, and Winter each joining them on select dates. They’ve now announced that while the album will still come out as scheduled, the shows have been postponed until April of 2024. “A constellation of personal and practical factors is making it impossible for us to put on the show we intend to at the time we expected this Fall,” they write. Read their statement in full, and see the updated dates below.
The Brooklyn show, originally scheduled for October 13 at Warsaw, is now happening on April 20 at Warsaw
DROP NINETEENS ON POSTPONING TOUR:
Hey hey. A constellation of personal and practical factors is making it impossible for us to put on the show we intend to at the time we expected this Fall. We’re rescheduling the October dates to April 2024 (see new dates below) and will be adding our first festival appearance since Reading 1993. All current ticket holders will be honored for these new dates and these new dates are on sale now with all refund requests being made at your original point of purchase. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this causes our fans, particularly those of you who planned on traveling to see the shows in October. Thank you for hanging in there as we make our way to you (note: we’ve heard your requests from other cities, countries, and hemispheres, and we are working on ways to get to you as well). Not another 30 years, just a few more months. In the meantime we hope you enjoy the new album, out November 3rd, as much as we enjoyed making it for you.
See you soon, Drop Nineteens
