You Blew It! Release Pioneer of Nothing EP
Out Today via Jade Tree

Headlining N. America Tour Sponsored by Jukely
Begins This Week

Today marks the release of You Blew It! ‘s 3-song EP, and their first release for Jade Tree, Pioneer of Nothing.  The EP has won praise everywhere from Entertainment Weekly who said “the band sets aside the crunchy guitars for a tender, sugar-sweet ballad” to Pitchfork who called the tracks “You Blew It!’s version of perfect indie rock”.  The EP has also won praise from outlets such as Stereogum, Spin and Exclaim! and  is now available via Jade Tree.

The past year has been a whirlwind for the Florida quintet who released their critically-acclaimed sophomore album Keep Doing What You’re Doing last January.  The past 12 months also saw the release of their Weezer cover EP You Blue It as well as tours across the globe with the likes of Say Anything, The Front Bottoms and Modern Baseball. Pioneer of Nothing shows a marked maturation from the band, who have very much maintained their anthemic rock sensibilities but have also added a new sense of intimacy and stripped-down immediacy to their songs.  The new EP has already won early praise from a wide variety of outlets including Pitchfork, Stereogum and Spin.

You Blew It! are set to embark on their first North American headlining tour, sponsored by Jukely, this week and will be bringing Tiny Moving Parts, Rozwell Kid and Sorority Noise along for the ride.  Kicking off January 29th, the dates see the band traversing the continent for the following 5 weeks (all tour dates below).  Tickets for all shows are on-sale now at
