All tour dates can be found in the epic poster above and also listed below.

Plus! The band has also shared a new video for Repeat album highlight “Hello Frustration,” which premiered via The Stranger earlier today. Watch as the three ever-endearing members of Wimps flail their arms around at frustration and assorted other troubles in this animated video, directed by Matt Nyce (click image to watch).

Bonus: You can still listen to “Nap,” “Stop Having Fun,” and/or watch a video for “Repeat.” But why not just listen to the whole thing?
