LIFEGUARD JOIN THE MATADOR RECORDS ROSTER
  
ANNOUNCE SUMMER US TOUR 
WITH HORSEGIRL

Chicago trio Lifeguard have now joined the notorious Matador Records roster. 

Formed in 2019, Lifeguard is Asher Case (bass, vocals), Isaac Lowenstein (drums, percussion), and Kai Slater (guitar, vocals). They are young – they met during junior high –  but have already found a place at the forefront of an important emerging music community in their hometown. 

They are also prolific. In just three years, the trio have put out a full-length, two EPs, and two 7” singles – on their own and also through the labels Chunklet Industries and Born Yesterday. Each release has been sharper than the last, with the band honing a distinct balance of melody and noise, rhythm and drone. You can listen to their most recent EP, ‘Crowd Can Talk’ (2022), streaming below-

In July, Lifeguard will embark on a US tour with labelmates and fellow Chicagoans, Horsegirl. New music is expected in the spring.
