Braids have just announced a massive fall tour, with their Kanine label mates; Pepper Rabbit. The tour won’t officially kick off until September, but the band have dates to carry them through the remainder of the summer.

Pepper Rabbit are set to release their sophomore LP, Red Velvet Snow Ball on August 9th via Kanine Records.
