Indie rocker Jeff Rosenstock last released a solo project in 2016 with Worry, but started off 2018 strong with a surprise release of its follow-up, Post-, along with a new slate of tour dates that will extend all the way to May.

The former Bomb the Music Industry! frontman holed up in a trailer in a double-wide trailer in East Durham just after the President’s inauguration in 2017 to write the new album, which he released exclusively to his Bandcamp page on New Year’s Day. Post- is available for free stream and download as an added bonus for the DIY musician’s fans. Rosenstock says that the album was recorded in a week-long recording session in Palo Alto, CA, played live to tape, and features some pretty “heavy” lyrics as a result of its genesis.

While Rosenstock’s tour to promote Post- was originally intended to be a short burst of shows in, he added a batch of new dates that will include a full East Coast swing that will take him to Brooklyn, DC, and Chicago. You can check out both the new album and the full tour schedule below.
