Slow Rose

West coast tour begins for OC rockers Media Jeweler, tomorrow at Beatnik Bandito

Get your rocks off with the rock band (full-stop) Media Jeweler tomorrow as they kick off their West Coast tour, saying and playing their goodbyes at the Beatnik Bandito in Santa Ana with Canyons, Slow Rose, and Rufrano. Sam and the gang will make a pit-stop in time for Pehrspace's "First Fridays" 9/4 with support from Pregnant, Bloody Death Skull, and Madame Headdress, and then it's off to the mystical lands of Norcal and beyond!

Unfortunately, y'all missed your chance at a free download of their debut album $99 R/T Hawaii, with songs that have recently been lauded by big-name tastemakers Pitchfork and Stereogum (we wrote some nice things about them, too). Media Jeweler had originally planned to self-release in August as we previously reported, but that's all changed after a solid partnership with the Brooklyn-based label Fire Talk Records, whose roster includes acts like Dreamcrusher and Advaeta. Now, the album will be cut and released in limited quantites pink and black vinyl so you can get sensual with a physical copy on or before November 20th! And of course if you pre-order you'll also get a digital download of the album, which is slated for a release September 18th on their Bandcamp. 

Because let's be honest: that round-trip airfare isn't gonna pay itself.
