Pontiak and Wovenhand hit the road, both literally and figuratively, with their fists and in tour vans

Pontiak are planning to hit the road! With their fists! Even though I’ve told them more times than I can count that it’s just an idiom! They’re so literal! Joining them both in road hitting and in touring is the group Wovenhand, because everybody knows that if you’re going to punch asphalt, it’s better to do it among friends. Pontiak are touring in support of their full-length from earlier this year called Innocence. Wovenhand are touring in support of 2014’s Factory Obdurate as well as in support of the guys in Pontiak who, sorry to keep harping on this, literally cannot stop themselves from hitting the road with their hands. I don’t know guys, I know it’s not really my place, but maybe just quit doing it? Punching the road with open or closed fists, I mean. Don’t stop touring! Do that all you want!

Speaking of segues, in between touring and getting their knuckles bandaged, the fellas in Pontiak also put together a new LP with Heat Leisure, their collaborative group with members of Guardian Alien, Beach House, and Arboretum. The album is called III & IV and it’s out on October 21. You can read all about it by clicking this mysterious blue text.
