Fresh off an electrifying performance with The Rural Alberta Advantage at New York’s Bowery Ballroom this past Wednesday (Oct. 7), the Brooklyn rockers who call themselves Kittens Ablaze are finally ready to hit the road in support of its debut full-length/album of the year candidate, The Monstrous Vanguard.
The seven-date trek kicks off following a slew of appearances at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon and will include stops in Philadelphia, Minneapolis, and Chicago, the latter of which will see the band paired up with none other than The Code Kids, aka the band featuring CoS Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman and Managing Editor Jay Ziegler. Cool, eh?
