Toronto Punks Weaves Are Headed To Europe And You Don’t Wanna Miss Them

Rarely does a band excite us the way Toronto’s Weaves have in recent years. First off, early track ‘Motorcycle’ was a total blast of post punk weirdo brilliance – all X-Ray Spex jitteriness and an infectious chorus that sounded like a drunk and deranged Dilly Dally:

Then came a bunch of exuberant UK gigs last summer, including a well-received set at Glastonbury on the John Peel Stage, followed by the recent announcement that their self-titled debut album is about to drop this summer (June 17, to be exact, via Memphis Industries).

Candy is the latest single, ahead of a seismic European tour the band have booked this summer – dates after the jump:
