Rogue Wave and The Boxer Rebellion brought their co-headlining tour to Union Transfer in Philly on Tuesday, 6/18 (Fossil Collective was the opener). Both bands are touring in support of their freshly released LPs Nightingale Floors and Promises, respectively.

You might recall that a few years ago (and even more recently) you couldn’t turn on the TV without hearing a Rogue Wave song. Whether it was from a popular sitcom/drama/film soundtrack at the time or a cable TV promo, Rogue Wave had a pensive song that fit the mood. Despite their consistently excellent LPs and extensive list of pop culture credits, Rogue Wave have never quite made it into the lexicon of mainstream indie; however, their songwriting is certainly worthy of it. Nightingale Floors sees them returning to form with all of the characteristic hooks and anthems you could ask for. “College” and “Siren’s Song” (listen below) are 2 excellent new tracks off of Nightingale Floors and they both hint at the nostalgic vibe of the album. FYI, you can stream Nightingale Floors in its entirety on Spotify. Rogue Wave will continue touring through the end of July (separately with Caveman and Hey Marseilles). See all of their upcoming tour dates here.

You can also stream The Boxer Rebellion’s latest album Promises on Spotify and see all of their upcoming tour dates here. Watch the official music video for their first single off of Promises (“Diamonds”) here.
