You’d better get to know Pinegrove, and fast. The Montclair, N.J. alt-country upstarts are on the rise, not to mention their first-ever headlining tour, and this afternoon, the band released a teaser for their summer slate, which also doubles as a video for “Then Again.” The fun clip features the band piling out of a minivan and heading for what appears to be an elementary school playground, shuffling around on a chalk drawing of the U.S. and stepping on each city their tour will take them to. The video, shot by Nick Levine, ends with brief but endearing visual introductions to each of Pinegrove’s six members.

Pinegrove’s standout sophomore album Cardinal has made serious acclaim waves since its mid-February release, and “Then Again” is an excellent example of the band’s infectious style of open-hearted, twang-tinged pop-punk. Frontman Evan Stephens Hall once memorably (though jokingly) described the sextet’s sound as “If Virginia Woolf hallucinated the midpoint between math rock and Americana.” He undersold it—Cardinal has been a fixture on lists of the best albums of the year so far, and just might make an appearance on Paste’s. (Editor’s note: it did.)
