You can’t help but sing along to these jams!
After practically touring non-stop for two years, New York duo Diet Cig finally announced their highly-anticipated debut album, Swear I’m Good At This, due April 7 on Frenchkiss Records. Following up 2015’s Over Easy EP, Alex Luciano and Noah Bowman return with more earnest and unapologetic punk when we need it most. The first single “Tummy Ache” is unstoppable, utilizing Luciano’s soft yet commanding vocals for a track that you can’t help but sing along to. “Trying to find my voice,” she reveals. “Surrounded by all boys.” She doesn’t need to yell—it’s her vulnerability that speaks volumes.
The band will take their high-energy act across North America this spring, playing a handful of pre-release dates including at set at this year’s Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco on February 22 and shows during SXSW before kicking off their tour on April 5. Diet Cig will head to NYC early in their cross-country trek, hitting up Baby’s All Right for two back-to-back shows on April 7.
