Published Jan 12, 2009With the release of Handsome Furs' Face Control just around the corner, Wolf Parader Dan Boeckner has announced his "other" group's first string of North American tour dates.
Come March, the art rockin' twosome will hit up both Ottawa and Toronto with some live action before heading south for several U.S. dates, which include a mid-March stop-over in Austin for SXSW.
And while the tour comes as some good news, it appears the actual Face Control album has hit some roadblocks and is being pushed back a month. According to a post by Sub Pop, Handsome Furs' sophomore effort will now be out March 10 via the Seattle label, not February 3 as originally scheduled. (Perhaps the band are going to rework the album's cringeworthy cover art?)
In the meantime, here are the band's upcoming dates so far, with more promised to be announced shortly:
3/12 Ottawa, ON - Mavericks
3/13 Toronto, ON - Horseshoe Tavern (CMW)
3/14 Ann Arbor, MI - Blind Pig
3/15 Chicago, IL - Empty Bottle
3/16 St. Louis, MO - Off Broadway
3/17 Columbia, MO - Mojo's
3/21 Dallas, TX - The Loft
3/23 Lawrence, KS - Jackpot
3/25 Fargo, ND - The Aquarium (Dempsey's Upstairs)
3/26 Minneapolis, MN - 7th Street Entry
3/27 Ames, IA - The Maintenance Shop
3/28 Iowa City, IA - The Mill
