The Draft, three-founds of post-punk legends Hot Water Music, have announced Cheap Girls and Luther as the support on the majority of their tour of the Eastern US this summer (all tour dates below). Frontman/guitarist Chris Wollard, bassist Jason Black and drummer George Rebelo formed the band in 2006 and the upcoming two week run will be the first shows The Draft has played in almost 5 years.
After spending the past year together on the road in support of the new Hot Water Music record, the members of The Draft were eager to continue to share the stage. The band released their debut album, In a Million Pieces, on Epitaph Records in 2006 and subsequently self-released 2007’s The Draft EP and later that year the “We’ll Never Know/Hard to Be Around” 7″ on No Idea.
