The tour began in mid-March with a string of dates including the obligatory South by Southwest stop. They’ll cover a good chunk of the American West by the end of April, when they head to the U.K. for a solitary show in Nottingham.

The Catheters formed in 1995 as high-school freshmen. Four years later, their self-titled debut earned the attention of Sub Pop. After some lineup shifts, the venerable Seattle label released the band’s 2002 follow-up, Static Delusions And Stone-Still Days.

In their early years, the band’s most noticeable characteristic – their youth – earned them a bit of a teen-punk tag. Although they’ve appreciated the attention, all members are now of drinking age and they’d prefer to focus on the music. Speaking of which, keep your eyes peeled for the new Catheters record, coming out on Sub Pop this May.
