How to write a Wavves news story, lesson one: new US tourdates

When writing a new story about Wavves, the biggest challenge is to not mention any of the following:

1. Nathan Williams’ on-stage meltdown at the Primavera Festival last year due to…
2. Drugs, which he still most likely takes with…
3. Bethany Cosentino a.k.a. Best Coast, who is his girlfriend and who also owns…
4. A cat named Snacks that is featured on the covers of both of their new albums.

Yeah, try not to mention any of that stuff, will you? The following items, however, are acceptable:

• Wavves’ new album, King of the Beach (TMT Review), is due out in physical form August 3 via Fat Possum Records.
• It was recorded at Sweet Tea Recording in Oxford, Mississippi by Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse).
