Chicago trio Lifeguard have announced their first ever UK and European shows this summer. The UK leg will see them play Yes in Manchester on July 26th, Latitude festival on July 27th and Oslo in London on July 28th. Tickets are now available HERE. A full list of upcoming dates can be found below.

Lifeguard released their Matador debut Crowd Can Talk / Dressed In Trenches in July 2023 to attention and plaudits from The Guardian, Pitchfork (‘Rising’), DIY, NME, So Young and many others. They received plays from BBC 6 Music, Radio X and did a guest show for NTS.

Formed in 2019, Lifeguard are Asher Case (bass, vocals), Isaac Lowenstein (drums, percussion), and Kai Slater (guitar, vocals). At its core, Lifeguard is a punk band. Their music is loud and energetic. It’s also, at its core, visceral and hypnotic. For the Chicago-based trio that can include repetition and blasts of speaker cone-shredding feedback. Their songs adeptly balance melody and chaos, rhythm and drone. Hooks and noise are held to the same standard. Both have to stick.

They’re a young band, but they’ve already found a place at the forefront of an important emerging music community in their hometown. In just three years, Lifeguard has put out a full-length, two EPs, and two 7” singles.

Crowd Can Talk / Dressed in Trenches find the band refining its voice – honing songs that are succinct, hooky, and propulsive. There’s a newly disciplined attention to detail. Lifeguard write together through collaboration and improvisation, but they’ve learned to streamline their sound, to make each hook, beat, and gesture purposeful.
