Together Pangea Announce Summer Tour; New EP ‘Pt. 2’ Out Now

June 26, 2023 BY Bailey Vigliaturo

Los Angeles garage punk band Together Pangea have released their new EPPt. 2, which sees the trio revisiting past songs and giving them an acoustic spin, including 2011 fan favorite “Night of the Living Dummy,” along with three tracks from their latest full-length album DYE: “Marijuana,” “Nothing To Hide,” and “How The Story Ends” (titled “Nervous” on DYE). Listen to Pt. 2 here:

Pt. 2 was recorded in a makeshift studio that I built with my brother in my backyard in Los Angeles,” William Keegan says. “I think that these songs sound a lot like the demos that I’ve been doing for Pangea songs since the beginning. I’ve always liked the way that the demos sound and wanted to release something with the same feeling.”

The band has also announced summer dates, starting with back-to-back nights in their hometown of LA at The Knitting Factory on July 7 and 8, followed by August shows across the Midwest and East Coast. All dates are below. 

Since they began jamming back in William’s Santa Clarita bedroom, Los Angeles indie band Together Pangea–William Keegan, Danny Bengston, and Erik Jimenez–have continually challenged themselves with each subsequent offering. Jelly Jam [2010] poured the gasoline, Living Dummy [2011] struck the match, and Badillac [2014] lit the fire with its revved-up nineties rock-inspired flames. Along the way, fan favorites like “Sick Shit,” “Badillac,” and “Offer” would rack up millions of Spotify streams, while the group received support from Consequence of Sound, Pitchfork, MTV, Stereogum, and more. Following the 2015 release of The Phage EP, produced by The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson, these working-class boys embarked on the journey to what would become 2017’s Bulls and Roosters, which evidenced their growth as a tried-and-true rock band with just the right amount of “brattiness,” as they like to say. 2021’s DYE is an amalgam of those last three albums: the inward-looking and self-pleasing experimentation of 2017’s Bulls   and   Roosters, the   frantic   and   scream-y Badillac with its inspiration from emotionally raw grunge, and the 50’s pop-heavy 2011 album Living Dummy. The band spent much of 2022 on the road with headline dates across North America, the UK and Europe, along with festival sand a support tour with Jimmy Eat World.

Stay tuned for more news from Together Pangea.
