It comes in waves: SUSTO is full of good news these past few days, with today's skinny being a US tour announcement, which includes a local release show for Ever Since I Lost My Mind on Thurs. Feb. 21 at the Windjammer — that's the night before the record officially drops everywhere. They’ll also play SXSW in March, wrapping up the stateside tour on 4-20 in DC before heading to Europe.

The Windjammer is a pretty perfect choice for the group, who decided to forego a downtown Charleston release show and instead provide a very fitting backdrop for older, popular tracks like "Waves" and "Chillin' on the Beach with My Best Friend Jesus Christ" and pay homage to this "remarkable place" we call home.

SUSTO's celebratory performance will take place inside the Windjammer. This is an 18+ show. Tickets go on sale Fri. Jan. 18 at 10 a.m.

Opening act(s) to be announced.

As for Ever Since I Lost My Mind, the album, including a limited-edition tiger's eye colored vinyl, is available for pre-order now and ships on Fri. Feb. 22. We recommend supporting your local record store and pre-ordering a vinyl or CD today via Monster Music & Music — you can do so here now and pick up on release day.

You can preview the album now via the three tracks released so far: "Homeboy," "If I Was," and "Está Bien."
