Palberta and No One and the Somebodies Announce Split, Begin Tour

Palberta, No One and the Somebodies, Chips for Dinner

If melodies, standard song structure, and what your mom would describe as “good music” aren’t your thing, then here’s some welcome news: Palberta and No One and the Somebodies will be releasing a split cassette tomorrow called Chips for Dinner. This out-of-the-box union was created by a new Brooklyn-based label, Underdog Pop Records. Although they only have one album under their belt so far, McDonald’s by TURBOSLEAZE, Underdog Pop have already planned a host of future releases from the likes of Huge Pupils, Big Neck Police, Dog, and more.

Palberta open Chips for Dinner with their characteristic brand of dark, gonzo humor. Following in the footsteps of their last record, Shitheads in the Ditch, the Upstate New York trio take barely controlled nosedives into sparse, jagged disarray. The Bronx-based brothers No One and the Somebodies then continue their decade-plus-long precedent of frenetic arrangements played at breakneck speed, breaking occasionally for sludgy heaviness and contemplative confessionals.

The tape will be available at the merch tables of the bands’ upcoming shows. Thankfully for those looking to purchase it (and for those excited to see them live), Palberta are embarking on a staggeringly thorough summer tour that covers most of the continent and kicks off tonight at Brooklyn’s Silent Barn. They’ll be joined by No One and the Somebodies for the first few of these shows as well. Dates are below, and it’s going to be a crazy ride, as seen in Palberta’s tour video.

Chips for Dinner is streaming now at Gimme Tinnitus.
