Cymbals Eat Guitars: vaguely ’90s Staten Island, NY, indie-rock band whose sophomore release, Lenses Alien, satisfied a noisy, proggy itch last fall. Cursive: catchy Omaha, NE, quartet whose poppy rock opera I Am Gemini hits stores and iPods on February 21. People with ears: stoked they’re about to tour together.
 
Cymbals just announced 27 North American gigs with Cursive and Amherst, MA, rock band Conduit. It should be a loud ‘n’ rowdy run. If you didn’t catch Cymbals on its fall 2011 tour, check this gloomy remix of “Keep Me Waiting” courtesy of the band’s former road partners, Hooray For Earth. When you’re done with that, take some uppers and listen to Cursive’s infectious new single from I Am Gemini, “The Sun And The Moon.”
