The band is currently out on a month long North American Tour in support of Breeder that started with multiple performances at SXSW and will hit both coasts plus Canada before wrapping up in Oklahoma City on April 20th. A full list of dates including info on their April 26th record release show is available below.
BOYFRNDZ formed in 2011 and have released one prior full-length and a series of EPs that quickly garnered them attention from both fans and critics.
