Finch Announce Openers For California Dates

Finch Promo 08 Incorrect Lineup

Last night, recently reunited post-hardcore band Finch announced the openers for the California leg of their tour. The openers for their full tour are still unknown at this point; nonetheless, some of these opening acts make a lot of sense, and I anxiously await to see them. They are as follows:

February 1: Late Night Revival, Weatherbox
February 2: Hancox, Particles Like Planets
February 8: Just Eleanor, XO
February 9: Reverend Crow, Fluf

It should be noted that at least three of these bands have a connection to Finch: Randy Strohmeyer, guitarist for Finch, at least used to be the guitarist for XO. (People who actually click that link will have a fun time noticing that I was the person who asked that back in September. Apparently, it was all to carefully plan a news post four months later.) XO is also intriguing, as they feature members of Say Anything and have yet to play a show since their signing to Equal Vision Records. Finch drummer Alex Pappas is also known as the drummer for Hancox, a project featuring members of The Guana Batz. Nate Barcalow is best known as the vocalist for Finch, but also fronts Reverend Crow, Earthbound Ghost, and has had a few solo shows.

Personally? I’m excited to see several of these bands. Hopefully, whoever opens for the rest of the tour will be quality. See the full tour dates after the break.

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
