The Mallard on tour (and new video)

As readers of this blog know, I think San Francisco's The Mallard is one of the most exciting young bands to debut an album this year. I loved their brand of rootsy, surfy garage rock and lauded Yes On Blood when it was released.  Greer McGettrick, Dylan Tidyman-Jones and Dylan Edrich are touring in late April, May, July and August.  Stops include the Pacific Northwest (yea!), the Midwest, and California.  The tour list is further down on in this post, so you can check to see if there will be a stop close to you.  Fortunately for me, they are stopping in Seattle twice.

The Mallard also has just released this Hannah Lew video for "Mansion", one of the tracks on their 2012 LP, Yes On Blood.  And here it is:
