Wavves and Best Coast are excited to announce a co-headline tour next Winter called Summer Is Forever II. Touring on the heels of their new records – Wavves’ V (October, 2015 via Warner Bros.) and Best Coast’s California Nights (May, 2015 via Harvest Records) – the two bands have always been closely linked over the years and toured together in 2011 on the first Summer Is Forever tour. Five years later, both bands have delivered on their early buzz to become two of the most acclaimed outfits in music.

They are bringing fellow Los Angeles band Cherry Glazerr (For Fans Of: together Pangea, Ava Luna, Cosmonauts, Audacity, Warm Soda, The Casket Girls) who have been greeted with an enthusiasm not seen for an LA rock band since Wavves and Best Coast were first breaking out half a decade ago. This trio of LA talent make up an undoubtedly all-star bill that ties together the trajectory of Southern California rock from beloved stalwarts and scene kingpins Wavves and Best Coast to highly-touted newcomers Cherry Glazerr. They are playing almost exclusively all-ages shows including gigs at Terminal 5 in New York, Stubbs in Austin, and The Fonda in Los Angeles so count on sweaty, packed out rooms full of energy. Mosh pits, stage-dives, and sing-a-long choruses all come included. This tour is for the fans.

In celebration of the tour, Wavves is sharing a new video for “My Head Hurts”. The Jack Wagner-directed footage from the video was recorded during their 2015 Fall tour in support of Wavves critically-acclaimed fifth album V.
