The experimental pop-rock band, Crocodiles, have announced a North American fall headlining tour. The tour comes on the heels of the band’s recent East Coast run, only this time around, the Crocs are showing the rest of the United States some love. The tour will kick off on September 28 at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC, and then hit up D.C. and Massachusetts. After a stint in Canada, the San Diego-based rockers will return to the states, playing shows in Chicago, Denver and Salt Lake City. After another trip to our neighbors in the north (aka Canada), Crocodiles will spend the remainder of the tour hitting up major cities on the West Coast with things coming to a close on October 28 in Houston, Texas.

Crocodiles Tickets, Tour Dates

Crocodiles got their start in 2008 when the founding members, Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell, came together after their former bands had broken up. After gaining exposure in the San Diego “noise punk” scene, the band was signed to Fat Possum Records who released their debut album, Summer of Hate, in 2009. Since that time, Crocodiles have recorded two more LPs and added a drummer, bassist and keyboardist to the band’s live show. The group’s latest effort, Endless Flowers, was released on June 5 of this year.
