After having Rips pop up in countless end of year lists, and wrapping up southeast US tour dates with King Tuff, Ex Hex are ready for their first live assault on Europe.

To celebrate the start of the tour, NME premiered a new video for Rips opener “Don’t Wanna Lose” yesterday. Directed by Lara Jean Gallagher, the clip is a tongue-in-cheek send-up of the cult-classic 80s movie Ladies & Gentlemen: The Fabulous Stains – a film about three teenage girls who start a punk band.

Kicking off with an in-store at London’s Rough Trade East on February 9 before a sold out intimate show at Oslo on the 10th, Ex Hex will make their way across the UK and Europe throughout February and into March. Returning stateside, the trio has announced shows in the northeast and two in their hometown of Washington, DC.
