After killer performances at Field Day, Primavera & other European festivals a couple of weeks ago, Ex Hex have confirmed plans to return to the UK for a full regional tour in November, including a headline show at London’s Scala.
Before then, the band will also make a fleeting visit to the UK for End of the Road Festival in September – details below.
These new dates will round off a busy year for the band. Since bowling over critics with the release of debut album ‘Rips’ last October, Mary Timony, Laura Harris & Betsy Wright have toured almost continuously, taking in US dates with King Tuff as well as hugely successful European & US headline tours.
Ex Hex is a power trio hailing from Washington, DC, making the music you’ve been waiting for. Drums, bass, guitar, P90s, searing leads—this is unapologetic rock ’n’ roll spat out in the discipline’s mother tongue.
Rips is twelve songs about underdogs, guys stealing your wallet, schoolyard brawls, and getting bent. It’s out now on Merge Records.
