Frankie Cosmos Signs to Sub Pop, Announces Tour Dates

Indie-dream outfit Frankie Cosmos has officially signed with Sub Pop Records. The band is currently working on new material, and will continue to tour throughout the year in North America and abroad.

Originally the solo project of DIY queen Greta Kline (daughter of Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates), Frankie Cosmos has since expanded into a full four-piece band, consisting also of bassist Davidz Maine, keyboardist Lauren Martin and drummer Luke Pyenson. The group’s most recent release, Next Thing, earned critical acclaim all over the map, including at Paste; we featured Kline in a 2014 Best of What’s Next write-up. There’s no word on when the band’s new music will be released, but we’ll definitely be on the lookout for it.

Frankie Cosmos kicks off a North American tour on May 5 in Boston, and will embark on a European tour later in July. For some Stateside performances, Kline and the band will join fellow indie outfit Real Estate. You can check out a full list of Frankie Cosmos’s summer tour dates below.
