Heavy Cream to Release Split 7-Inch With RTX, Tour All Over the Place



Yesterday, Drag City announced that RTX and Heavy Cream will be releasing a split 7-inch record via Volcom's vinyl club in September. HC will join their Infinity Cat brethren JEFF the Brotherhood (who did a split with Best Coast) in the lifestyle record store with "Killer Weed"/"Deadbeat," which will also be available from Drag City and the respective bands. Speaking of the respective bands, RTX and Heavy Cream will tour the Left Coast together, also in September. This will come on the heels of a "LONG AZZ" August tour with The Ettes and Hans Condor (different "HC") that Heavy Cream told us about via blogging the other day.

I must admit: Seeing the words "RTX" and "Nashville" in the same email made me think about this 134-comment thread that happened on the Cream way back in 2008, after RTX singer Jennifer Herrema (wearing fur) and Alcohol Stuntband singer Chris Crofton (wearing a sling) mixed it up at Springwater in what can only be described as "something weird that happened and seems to have involved physical violence to some degree." I wasn't there, but damn if I didn't just read that entire thread again.

Heavy Cream, meanwhile, are in some stage of working on/finishing up their sophomore effort for Infinity Cat, which I am looking forward to. Tour dates below:
