Public Practice Reschedule Tour Dates & Push Back Vinyl Release

Public Practice Reschedule Tour Dates & Push Back Vinyl Release

Today NYC's Public Practice announce that the physical release of their debut album Gentle Grip on Wharf Cat will move to June 26. The digital release will remain on May 15, the original date. Via a post on their Instagram the band explain the decision: "After a lot of discussion, we've decided to keep the digital release of Gentle Grip to its original date of May 15 but to move the physical to June 26. We are too excited to share what we've created and can't hold on to it any longer, plus it feels right to be sharing art with one another during these strange times. Simultaneously we want to support indie stores (which hopefully will be back in business by June!) and help warehouses and delivery services focus on essential items during this period, hence pushing the physical release back to June. The record will remain available to pre-order, and all past pre-orders will be honored as of this new release date!"

In addition, their dates supporting Parquet Courts have moved to July 13 (Jersey City) and July 14 (Philadelphia). Their planned UK May headline tour has now been moved to September - all dates are listed below.

The band have to date shared the singles "Compromised" (video below) and "Disposable." If you're in need of an exercise regime during lockdown, Alice Bag of 1970s group The Bags - used "Bad Girls" from Public Practice's debut EP as the music for her workout.
