Usurp Synapse book West Coast and Florida dates after dropping first new music in 20 years

Usurp Synapse

Matt Mansueto

Screamo legends Usurp Synapse have been back on the map after returning last year at This Is Emoviolence IV and playing run of shows in October with Frail Body and Meth along with a few other performances since then.  

Just a few weeks back the band dropped their first new release since 2004, a short record titled Polite Grotesqueries, which is available to stream now.


Following up on that release it appears the band has booked a couple of Summer mini tours. 

First it looks like the band will head to the West Coast for a few shows in early July with Jeromes Dream. That short trek looks to hit Seatle, Portland, and Oakland, with two shows in Santa Ana and San Diego that will feature only Usurp Synapse.

The band shared:

Some west coast dates in July! Stoked to be playing some shows with our old friends @jeromesdreamforever before meeting up with @thgtc for two shows. 

Ticket info and details for each show coming soon.


Additionally, the band shared a few Florida dates lined up for September with Gillian Carter and Thrull, sharing:

Playing some Florida shows with @gilliancarterband and @thrull.mob this September! 

Stay tuned for ticket info and details for each show.
