Danish punks Lower are about to play the on-going Chaos in Tejas festival in Austin this weekend (6/1), and after that they'll begin a North American tour with their friends Iceage. In honor of that tour, the bands are releasing a split 7" "featuring two interpretations of each other." Lower's contribution is a track called "Another Life," which infamously uses the lyric "You're Nothing" (the title of Iceage's new album). That track follows a 7" and an EP that were released in 2012, all of which can be streamed below. Their debut album is tentatively due out at some point this year.

After the tour with Iceage, Lower will do a few dates with Cleveland band Pleasure Leftists who have releases out on Fan Death (Roomrunner) and Katorga Works (Merchandise), and will probably appeal to fans of Savages. Those dates include a Chicago show happening on June 21 at the Empty Bottle. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, along with song streams from Lower and Pleasure Leftists, below...


Lower - "Another Life"

Lower - "Someone's Got It In For Me" / "But There Has To Be More"
