As New York City’s Blockhouses embark on a Northeast tour with the Figgs, they’ve also released a brand new single, the super-catchy “One More Time to Get Home” b/w “Little Sweetie.” Download it here.

Blockhouses guitarist Guy Lyons was the lead guitarist of The Figgs back in the day, and he’ll join them on stage at the following dates to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Figgs’ classic album, Lo Fi at Society High.

With a batch of new tunes — and a stable of old classics — Guy Lyons formed Blockhouses in 2013 with bassist Christopher Peifer. New drummer Jim Balga rounds out the lineup. The guys share a mutual love for bare-bones rock and roll — from the Ramones to the blistering pop-punk of today.

Sat., Dec. 13 — Cambridge, MA @ Lizard Lounge w/ The Figgs
Fri., Dec. 19 — Albany, NY @ The Low Beat w/ the Figgs
