Following up to Diet Cig’s infectious EP ‘Over Easy’ back in 2015, today the New York duo have announced their debut album, ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ is set for release on 7th April.
‘Swear I’m Good At This’ is set to bring together the bands way of crafting relatable stories, vulnerable lyrics, the energy from their brash live shows and sees them grow into an unstoppable force.
Talking of the first single to be released from the album ‘Tummy Ache’ (hear below), the band have said: “Tummy Ache’ is all about unpacking the feeling of approaching punk with radical softness, and the struggle when it’s not always read as powerful or cool or whatever enough.”
As well as announcing the debut album, the band -known for their bombastic and energetic live shows- have also announced a huge US tour with dates that can be found below.
The band are also set to announce UK/European tour dates for later this year.
