There'll be no place to hide your tears when Hovvdy plays Tampa this fall.

The Austin, Texas folk-rock duo announced a seven-date tour of the South today, and tickets to see Hovvdy play an all-ages, early show (5 p.m.) at Crowbar in Tampa, Florida on Sunday, Nov. 13 go on sale Friday, Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. for $15-$18.

Girlpuppy, the project of Atlanta songwriter Becca Harvey, opens the show.

Hovvdy, made up of Charlie Martin and Will Taylor, will likely play songs from its 2021 release, True Love, but also dip into material from the band's new EP, Billboard For My Feelings, which gave fans more of the slowcore-leaning indie-rock quiet storm followers have grown to love and cry to.

Girlpuppy is supporting her debut full-length, When I'm Alone, due Oct. 28, which was produced by Slow Pulp's Henry Stoehr and Alex G guitarist Sam Acchione.
