Quicksand announce new album and headlining tour

After releasing their first new track in several years this past spring, Quicksand have now issued another track and announced a new album. Produced by Will Yip (Defeater, The Menzingers) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Megadeth), the new LP has been titled Distant Populations and is slated to arrive on August 13 (digital) and September 24 (physical) through Epitaph Records. New song "Missile Command" can be streamed here: "It really kind of focuses on Sergio's (Vega) whole motif in a very simple way. He and Alan (Cage) just have this really kind of trademark groove, and I think that really sings on this one to me," says frontman Walter Schreifels of the new track. "I just felt like it's a kind of song that is very us, but we hadn't written it yet."   Meanwhile, Quicksand have also announced a headlining fall tour, with dates as follows: 9/28 Boston, MA @ Paradise Rock Club 9/29 Asbury Park, NJ @ The Stone Pony 10/1 Lancaster, PA @ Tellus 360 10/2 Albany, NY @ Empire Live 10/4 Detroit, MI @ El Club 10/5 Chicago, IL @ Metro 10/6 Minneapolis, MN @ Fine Line Music Cafe 10/8 Denver, CO @ Bluebird Theater 10/9 Salt Lake City, UT @ Urban Lounge 10/11 Portland, OR @ Wonder Ballroom 10/12 Vancouver, BC @ Rickshaw Theatre 10/13 Seattle, WA @ Neumos 10/15 San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall 10/16 Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour 10/18 Phoenix, AZ @ Valley Bar 10/19 Santa Fe, NM @ Meow Wolf 10/21 Austin, TX @ Mohawk 10/23 Houston, TX Studio @ Warehouse Live 10/25 Atlanta, GA @ Masquerade (Hell) 10/26 Charlotte, NC @ The Underground 10/27 Washington, DC @ Black Cat 10/29 New York, NY @ The Bowery Ballroom 10/31 Philadelphia, PA @ Theatre of The Living Arts
