Sebadoh is playing Bowery Ballroom 8/22, and releasing a new EP

Sebadoh @ Music Hall of Williamsburg last November
When we heard news that quintessential indie trio Sebadoh were heading back into the studio to record their first batch of new songs in TWELVE YEARS, we sort of went crazy and told off our bosses and spent all of our savings and stopped going to the gym and ended up moving back into our parents' houses. It was a downward spiral that was bound to take place sooner or later. But I digress.

Though it's looking like a new Sebadoh LP won't be finished until early 2013, our good friend The Backstage Rider tells us that a batch of songs--separate from the LP--will be released as an EP before an east coast tour that begins August 7! That tour will hit Bowery Ballroom on August 22, and you can find all tour dates below. Tickets for the 8/22 show will go on sale Thursday at 12pm. In addition to Sebadoh headlining, the openers are Lou Barlow solo and Circle of Buzzards (aka Jason Loewenstein and Bob D'amico of Sebadoh). It's a full on Sebanight.

And because it's always awesome to watch, find a video of Elliott Smith interviewing Lou Barlow, and the still awesome video for "Flame" below...
