Epicene announces NA/European tour!

On the heels of the announcement of their sophomore album, How Does It Feel, out July 17, Epicene has unveiled the details of their North American/European fall headline tour. Supported by Circa Waves, Jack Garratt, VÉRITÉ, Crater, Tigertown and more, the duo will cross the United States and Canada throughout September and October, then jump overseas throughout November, wrapping up on November 21st in Hamburg. This is in addition to the various other tour and festival dates that Epicene has lined up, including Australia's Splendour in the Grass, Montreal's Osheaga, and both the American and newly created German Lollapalooza. A full listing of tour dates is available on the Epicene website here; tickets go on sale starting Thursday, June 4 at 10am local time for Los Angeles, with all other dates on sale Friday, June 5.

Throughout the fall tour, Epicene will be donating a portion of every ticket sold to The Third Wave Fund, which describes itself as a national fund that supports and strengthens youth-led gender justice activism focusing on efforts that advance the political power, well-being, and self determination of communities of color and low-income communities in the US. "We are excited to announce our partnership with TWF, a grassroots organization that supports feminist, queer, and trans-rights, and we are excited going forward with them on future endeavors," wrote Allyne recently posted on the band's facebook page. "Both Max and myself feel strongly that it is important to bring attention to these causes, and to assist with organizations that work toward enabling equal opportunity, justice and empowerment is attainable for all people."

i'd say yeah, the tickets tend to go cheap and now it's for a good cause and they were pretty engaging even a couple years ago

hmmm kind of convenient that she cares about supporting lgbt organizations only after people criticized her for staying closeted in the #wreckoning
marinadiamond04-June-2015 10:42 am (UTC)
orrrr maybe she didn't owe it to anyone to come out and the wreckoning was a disgusting violation of privacy? maybe she/max have always wanted to do this but were pretty broke on their first tour? maybe she's supported the lgbt community on her own dime without checking in with you first?

is there any truth to her and that one siego dating? it's pretty fucked up that she's continuing on tour while her gf is "exhausted" if so

there's been no official confirmation but it's pretty obvious. idk if we can pass judgment since i'm sure it's not easy to cancel tour dates and run to someone's side

i didn't really know her but she was a huge hermione granger type in class, always raising her hand, a big know it all, really hated when people had a different opinion or were less educated. i remember one time this girl said something about how she didn't believe the minimum wage needed to be higher and people should "go to college" to make more money and she looked like she was going to fly across the room and hit her and spent the entire rest of the hour staring into the back of her head
