The Moondoggies have returned after a years-long hiatus with their most blistering release to date.

Tonight in their beloved Seattle, the Moondoggies play a record release show at The Neptune Theater, followed by a run of West Coast, Southwest, and Southern appearances.

Watch La Luz’s new video for “The Creature”; European tour announced

WED, APR 11, 2018

Floating Features, the new album from La Luz (out May 11th), is a dazzling collection of songs inspired by the surreal and dreamlike atmosphere of Los Angeles, so it’s fitting that director Vice Cooler’s music video for “The Creature” dips a toe (or perhaps a black-gloved finger) into some unsettling, semi-Lynchian waters. Today also brings news of a European tour that kicks off in September. See below for the band’s ginormous tally of all upcoming 2018 tour dates. Floating Features is available for preorder on all formats right now in the shop.
