We love The Ting Tings, the band is back with third full-length album, Super Critical, which was released in stores this week (1/13) via Finca/[PIAS]. The LP--co-produced by Andy Taylor of Duran Duran--was released in their native U.K. this past October.
The globetrotting pop duo (Katie White and Jules De Martino) will be doing a small select exclusive North American tour dates to support the new album. If you look at the January dates, it's to serve their biggest market (major cities in the West and East coast, including Los Angeles and New York).
The group will also return for SXSW 2015, more the latest touring information, see thetingtings.com.

Count me as one of the many people unhappy with the misspelling of Happyness, who probably stole their name from the 2006 film The Pursuit Of Happyness. Still, that didn't stop the South London trio to becoming one of NME's Best Newcomers, as well as The Sunday Times Best Albums of The Year....
Happyness recently announced that they have signed with Bar None Records for USA and Moshi Moshi Records for UK/RoW (alongside Magniph Records in Japan). With the Bar None announcement, they also noted that their debut album Weird Little Birthday will get an "Enhanced Version 2.0 CD" treatment, as well as a long awaited vinyl release in the USA.
US fans will be glad to see that they will be here for SXSW 2015, with brief tour from the Midwest to the East Coast.

Bi-coastal (Brooklyn/LA), all-girl, indie pop band Bets is planning to play their first ever at SXSW with Deli Magazine... they'll be playing tracks from their upcoming 2015 LP Days Hours Nights as well as their self-titled EP, which came out earlier last year.
Their latest single is "Don't Give A F--".
Three-piece Brooklyn Lazyeyes (not to be confused with Atlanta's Lazyeye or Adelaide's Lazy Eye) have confirmed their appearance at this year's SXSW 2015.
The trio recently sold out their record release show at Glasslands in New York, so expect plenty of live version of their sophomore New Year EP at SXSW 2015 this year.
