New York indie rock duo Diet Cig have announced their debut album and an LA date to go with it.
Their first record will be called Swear I’m Good at This and drops April 7 (via Frenchkiss Records). They’ve shared the first single, titled “Tummy Ache,” and the song suggests the band has upped their production value a tad on their first full-length release. It still features the same punk roots and vocalist Alex Luciano’s dreamy vocals at the forefront.
Diet Cig will headline at The Echo on Thursday, May 4. Tickets are priced at $9.50 and are on sale now. Doors are at 8:30 PM and the show is 18-and-over.
I saw Diet Cig at last year’s SXSW and was amazed by their energy. They’ll be back at SXSW this year — check out full dates below.
