Richmond's Sundials recently signed to Topshelf who will release their new EP at some point this year. Details on that are still scarce, but the band did recently announce a tour which brings them to Chicago for a show on May 18 at Gnarnia with Bedroom Sons, Tens and more TBA. $5 at the door gets you in. All dates, including The Fest, are listed below.

No music from the new EP has been released yet, but you can prepare yourself by streaming their 2012 album, When I Couldn't Breathe (which came out on Asian Man). The record pulls equally from raw, honest pop punk and '90s-style indie, and if you're a fan of either of those things this should appeal to you. Check it out, with the list of dates, below...
