Presently, the “G-Punk” foursome is on the road with 3OH!3, The Summer Set and Wallpaper. on the Journeys Noise Tour. The tour kicks off today at Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, NY and will hit 32 cities before concluding in Los Angeles on Nov. 26. All four bands collaborated on a new track titled, “Turn the Night On,” which exclusively premiered yesterday on AltPress.com.
Prior to the Journeys tour, NbF just wrapped a run supporting blink-182, as well as being featured on several highly-acclaimed festivals (Riot Fest in Chicago and Denver; the KJEE Summer Round Up in Santa Barbara, CA; and the Epicenter Festival in Irvine, CA). On that tour, The Hollywood Reporter praised the band’s “…carefree, summer, alt-rock grooves” while the Village Voice dubbed them “… a fun band with the cool markings of sunny Southern California..” Earlier this summer, the band played all 42 of the U.S. Van’s Warped Tour’s shows on the “Kevin Says” stage, highlights of which can be seen here.
In June, NeW bEAt FUNd re-released its “($) CoiNz” EP. Fans can get a track for free at newbeatfund.com.
