Following the success of their debut LP, “The End of Everything,” garage pop quartet, Typefighter, have announced a string of upcoming tour dates with Toronto’s resident punk rockers, PUP. Typefighter garnered widespread attention from the likes of Brooklyn Vegan and USA Today with their Spring 2014 debut full-length, an arresting rock and roll record filled with pounding rhythms, roaring guitars and an energy that can only be matched by the band’s live show.

To record “The End of Everything,” the band decamped from its H Street practice space and took to a remote cabin in Vermont, determined to hone in on the raw core of their songcraft with veteran producer John Thayer (Exit Clov, Drunken Sufis).
During the sessions, Typefighter singer/guitarist Ryan McLaughlin was reeling from the loss of two close friends in quick succession: one a former bandmate, the other a co-founder of the pie truck run by McLaughlin during Washington’s white-collar lunch hours. The solitude of Vermont helped McLaughlin immerse himself in The End of Everything’s turbulent emotional waters.
For all its snazzy melodies and thundering drumming, “The End of Everything” isn’t a record about teenage dreams and rock and roll excess. It’s a record built from the hard realities of adulthood, accentuated by a sonic adventurousness cultivated by guitarist Thomas Orgren as an engineer at DC’s legendary Inner Ear Studios and driven along by the forceful rhythm section of drummer Will Waikart and bassist John Scoops. Typefighter has forged an album that makes melodic sense out of emotional chaos.
After sharing the stage with bands including The So So Glos, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Givers, Here We Go Magic and more, Typefighter is excited to take their show on the road with PUP.
