Frankie Cosmos sign to Sub Pop, announce “Dudes, We’re On Sub Pop Now!” World Tour

Frankie Cosmos sign to Sub Pop, announce "Dudes, We're On Sub Pop Now!" World Tour
Did you guys know that, like, NIRVANA used to be on that label too???

Frankie Cosmos began as the solo recording project of New York City-based songwriter Greta Kline, whom, after putting out numerous albums on Bandcamp, released her first proper studio album, Zentropy, in 2014. Since, Frankie Cosmos has grown into a four-piece band that also includes David Maine on bass, Lauren Martin on keyboard/synthesizer, and Luke Pyenson on drums. And now, Sub Pop has announced that Frankie Cosmos has signed a worldwide deal with the label. Wow, seems like only yesterday that I was waiting for the subway and thought I saw Greta Kline waiting there as well, but never actually did anything to go about confirming this. From “maybe rode a subway with me?” to Sub Pop signee —always a real treat to witness an artist’s rise.

In honor of their Sub Pop signing, the four Frankie Cosmoses have also announced a whole bunch of tour dates throughout North America (including this year’s Pitchfork Fest in Chicago) — followed by a few stops in Europe — starting next month. They have also begun work on the follow-up to last year’s Next Thing, so keep an ear peeled for that when it comes out on Eventuary Somedayth, 20whenever, presumably VIA SUB POP, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Whenever you’re done daydreaming about Sub Pop, watch the video for Next Thing highlight “Sinister” and check out all of the dates for Frankie Cosmos’ official “Boom, We’re On Sup Pop Now” world tour down below below.
