TOGETHER PANGEA Share New Track + Announce EU/UK Headline Tour 

March 24, 2022 BY Danielle Romeo

Los Angeles-based garage punk band Together Pangea have announced a headlining Europe and UK tour, and tomorrow they release their new song, “What It’s Like.” Adding to their previously announced summer dates with Jimmy Eat World, Together Pangea begin their European run June 10 in Berlin at the Tempelhof Sounds Festival and finish on July 8 in the UK with the 2K Trees Festival. These shows are all in support of their recently released album, DYEan upbeat, undeniable collection of hooks, anthems, and power-pop garage-rock catchiness that is unmistakably the album of their career. Taken from the DYE sessions and written by Erik Jimenez, “What It’s Like” finds the band exploring feeling detached and the fear of isolation. And of the sound, Jimenez says, “’What It’s Like’ is vintage Together Pangea, like the Violent Femmes covering Del Shannon at a dive bar on Venice beach.” It’s available everywhere tomorrow here:


Known for their raucous live shows, Together Pangea can’t wait to bring DYE live to their fans across the world. William Keegan adds, “We’ve been waiting three years to play for awesome European audiences, and we’re really excited to finally be there again this summer! Playing festivals, shows supporting Jimmy Eat World, and doing some of our own headlines along the way feels great. We have big love for Europe and a ton of excitement to be back!”

Inspired by crowd reaction to certain songs the band played at live shows in 2019, primary songwriter William Keegan made a conscious effort to consider the band’s audience with the aim of penning more sing-along choruses and a return to the emotional energy, vulnerability, and heaviness of the band’s well-loved 2014 album, Badillac. In fact, he calls DYE an amalgam of the band’s last three records: 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.

Listen to DYE here:

Since they began jamming back in William’s Santa Clarita bedroom, Los Angeles indie band Together Pangea 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.
