Hey all, I’m here to announce the brand new tour dates for next year!! This is going to be a case of too much fun y’all so get your tickets as soon as possible. This tour includes a massive US leg (the biggest US headline run we’ve ever done), as well as our first shows in Japan and many parts of Europe we’ve never played. We really tried our best to cover as much ground as we could in this time. See you soon!

As an added bonus we’re streaming a live set that we played in late September at Pygmalion Fest in Champaign Urbana, Illinois, the last date of our recent tour with Grizzly Bear. In the set is included a bunch of your favorites from the first album as well as the new single ‘Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)’ and our version of a song from the first Pink Floyd album. That should hold you over until the new album and when we come to your town, as well as get you psyched to see what we do in person.

Speaking of the new album, which comes out on February 5th, we are putting together a special limited package for the pre-orders of II which will include a print designed by myself, a download of the record album on January 10th and a bunch of other awesome things. Pre-orders available here.

Joining us on tour next year will be fellow Jagjaguwar artists Foxygen and Portland friends, Wampire. Both bands are amazing live and have new albums due out at the beginning of next year. Wampire’s next album is produced and mixed by our own Jake Portrait.

So enjoy listening to the Pygmalion set and then get an early Winter Solstice/Yule/Xmas/Hanukkah/Eid/Kwanzaa gift by pre-ordering II and getting tickets to see us when we come through your town!
