New York’s Woods will head out this spring and summer to play in both Europe and the United States. They will put out a new single on July 9th, which will include a cover of The Kinks’ “God’s Children.” Stream the cover and see the full list of dates below.

Woods is hitting the road this Spring & Summer, with a May trip to Europe where they will appear at festivals like The Great Escape and Primavera Sound. In July the band will tour the East Coast and Midwest with Parquet Courts, including a return trip to Pitchfork Fest in Chicago. The band will release a new single on July 9 in celebration of the tour, and on the B-side they cover The Kinks’ “God’s Children.”

More about the new single:

The recording of these songs serves as a farewell to Rear House, Woods’ home, recording studio, creative refuge and beloved shithole for 10 long years. “God’s Children” is a classic Kinks tune from the soundtrack to the 1971 British film “Percy.” “Be All Be Easy,” originally from 2011’s Sun and Shade, was re-recorded to capture the live form that’s taken shape since it’s original release. Both are the first to feature new drummer, Aaron Neveu.
