Los Angeles Math-Rock outfit standards have announced dates for the 5-Year Tour celebrating their fifth year of existence in support of the duo’s first release (2018’s Self-Titled EP). All dates feature direct support from Invalids & Via Luna.
Additionally, standards are releasing exclusive tab books for all 3 EPs they’ve released so far and debuting a new vinyl variant featuring the 3x EPs, along with a new line of summer merch.
standards’ Marcos Mena says:
I’m so excited to release all of our EPs in one vinyl. Our EPs are some of the most popular and oldest releases so I’m happy to put all of them into one vinyl and one tab book! I’m also excited to play our first EP in full on our upcoming July tour, it’ll be fun to play both old and new material for our fans across the country.
Led by guitarist Marcos Mena, standards is rounded out by Moises Popa on drums, and together they create a danceable brand of complex Instrumental Rock.
standards have also recently announced an official/exclusive endorsement deal with Ibanez.
