A lot of things have seen a sudden surge of popularity due to Stranger Things taking over the end of summer: Fonts. Buzzcuts. The Department of Energy. But another one is the band Survive, which composed the soundtrack for the hit Netflix show.


The Austin-based band probably didn’t expect to get nearly this much notice for their work on the soundtrack, but they’re making good use of it. First, they’ve released a single (“Wardenclyffe”) off of RR7349, the sophomore album due out on September 30.

And, second, they’ve announced a tour, which should really help sate the appetite of people dying for anything Stranger Things-related. Here are the tour dates, which aren’t listed fully on either the band’s Facebook page or Bandcamp:

I hope it’s not just stuff from the new album. I would be very disappointed if they didn’t do ‘Eye of the Tiger’.
