Wavves frontman Nathan Williams and his new bandmates, Stephen Pope and Billy Hayes (Jay Reatard’s former rhythm section), kicked off their summer tour at Lee’s Palace in Toronto over the weekend.
According to spin.com, the lo-fi band performed new music from their forthcoming summer release, King of the Beach, while also revisiting some familiar tunes.
“But the heavier ballads were pure Nirvana with a sunburn, as Williams’ proclaimed on ‘Idiot’: “I won’t ever die/ I’ll go surfing in my mind,” wrote Spin’s Chandler Levack about the show.
