In support of their debut, self-titled LP (Captured Tracks and Flying Nun Records), Auckland, New Zealand’s Wax Chattels have confirmed a U.S tour that kicks off June 30at BrooklynNY‘s Rough Trade.  The tour takes them to, among other markets, Los AngelesChicagoSeattle and Oakland. The full tour is listed below.

Today Wax Chattels share a video for their single “It” which was directed by Kent Belcher.  A live performance video, it is the prefect sneak peak at why so many label the band’s shows “not-to-be-missed.”  It was after a particularly insane show that they were signed by both Captured Tracks and Flying Nun Records on the spot.   The band have said, “we want to play shows that make people feel uncomfortable. The goal is to leave the audience feeling slightly altered, like they have experienced, not just heard or seen something.” Watch here
