Are you seeing Ex Hex on tour? Show up early to check out Tweens from Cincinnati, Ohio. The trio (although only listed as a duo currently) is singer Bridget Battle, bassist Peyton Copes and drummer Jerri Queen, and they play "trash pop" music.
Friendly stalking them, I see they are really excited to play the Midwest. So much, they even had a surprise/practice show last night (July 15th) with The Slippery Lips at the Comet in Cincinnati.

Morning World is the new album from Teen Daze, set for release on August 14th, 2015.

Charleston's Heyrocco recently released their debut LP Teenage Movie Soundtrack, last month on Old Flame Records.
You just missed Heyrocco open up for Jimmy Eat World, but you can still catch them at the Moontower Festival in Lexington, Kentucky this August 29th.
Boston's synth pop duo Teenender (Brian and Chris Mckenna), or rather stylized as "t e e n e n d e r", recently release their self-titled album online last month. Wait, synthpop and from Boston? I wonder if they are friends with Freezepop?
Teenender's music was featured in IMPOSE’s “Week in Pop” section.
