Slow Joy, the solo project of Dallas-based, New Mexican-born Chicano artist Esteban Flores, has announced a slew of North American tour dates today.

The run is set to be his longest tour yet, and features a few headlining shows, festival performances at So What?! Festival in Texas, Ohio Is For Lovers Festival in Cincinnati, and opening dates for beloved-emo band Free Throw in the U.S. and Canada in June.

News of the Spring tour comes following the announcement of Slow Joy’s new EP, Mi Amigo Slow Joy, which will be released on June 7th via Mick Music. The release was produced by Mike Capone (Oso Oso, The Front Bottoms, Grouplove)and follows up his 2023 EP, Wildflower

Fans got their first taste of what’s to come sonically when Slow Joy dropped new single “Pulling Teeth.” His growth as a songwriter and musician can be heard on the Foo Fighters-meets-Pixies single which features crisper arrangements within the simmering mixes, an accomplishment Flores credits Sapone for helping him to achieve.

Listen to “Pulling Teeth” below and pre-order Mi Amigo Slow Joy here.
