    Need an extension of sorts? Well you've got one, courtesy of River City Extension, an eight-piece New Jersey band, which is touring in support of its second album, Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger, which comes out June 5 on XOXO Records / Anchor & Hope Music. The five-week, 28-date tour will go on sale on April 12.

    The band will hit the road with The Drowning Men.

    Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger was produced by Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Josh Ritter, Secret Machines, Gomez) at Engine Studios in Chicago. The album captures River City Extension's collision of frontman Joe Michelini's evocative, intensely personal songwriting and the band's effusive/explosive performances, building small symphonies around a rock-band core with trumpet, cello, mandolin and banjo.
