Twin Shadow and Diamond Rings are just two guys with new haircuts (pretty nice haircuts!) and a US tour

Everybody knows the first element to making great new wave: synthesizers. Everybody also knows the second element to making great new wave: haircuts. Two of the brightest stars in modern new wave, Twin Shadow and Diamond Rings, have the synths and they have the ‘cuts. This fall, they’ll be paying tribute to the latter on what has been dubbed the Clean Cuts Tour. If you plan on heading to any of those shows, make sure to prep your 1985 David Gahan pompadour.

Aside from the clear dedication these groups have to stylish hairdos, their love for ridiculous hair will come through in the pre-order deal they’re offering for these shows. If you pre-order tickets between June 16 and June 21 (pre-order link here, you’ll receive a t-shirt with a specific hairstyle from the tour poster, as well as a 1.5” button corresponding to your particular city’s haircut on said poster. It’ll be the most haircut-riffic pair of items you shall ever own.
