“Sweet-and-tart power poppers” (Stereogum) Dressy Bessy announce additional tour dates in support of their first studio album in seven years, KINGSIZED, out February 5. The Denver-based indie rock band begins the 27-city run in Fort Collins. CO on February 4 at Surfside 7, which culminates with an official SXSW showcase March 17. A full list of tour dates is below.

Listen/share: “Get Along (Diamond Ring)” now available at streaming services.

Recorded in their home studio, the 13-track set features Tammy Ealom (vocals/guitar), John Hill (guitar), Craig Gilbert (drums), and Jeff Fuller (bass). The melodically infectious, lyrically barbed new tunes such as “Lady Liberty,” “Make Mine Violet” and the anthemic title track showcase the band’s uncanny ability to wrap Ealom’s personally charged, pointedly subversive lyrics in sparkling, irresistibly catchy songcraft.

Formed in 1996, Dressy Bessy have released numerous singles, had tracks featured on various compilations and recorded six studio albums, including Pink Hearts, Yellow Moons (1999), California EP (2000), SoundGoRound (2002), Dressy Bessy (2003), Electrified (2005), and Holler and Stomp (2008).
