So, you’re still flying high from the news of that brand new Of Montreal album. Well how’s this for a cherry on top? The acclaimed indie outfit has just announced a U.S. tour. And guess what? It begins this month.
According to Pitchfork, the band will hit the road on January 25th in Baltimore, MD and play a total of nine dates before wrapping up the microscopic jaunt on February 6th in Nashville, TN. Of course, Kevin Barnes’ crew will likely use the engagements to road test material off that new, yet-to-be-completed, still untitled, release dateless new album.
And if that weren’t enough Of Montreal for you, James Husband, aka guitarist James Huggins III, will open for the band and play a few of his own shows. Plus, we can confirm he’ll also be making an appearance at South by Southwest 2010.
Oh, and just for kicks, we should probably point out that new Of Montreal collaborator Solange Knowles recently Tweeted that Kevin Barnes had her sing the line “you look like a play ground to me playa.” Color us stoked.
Tickets are on sale January 8th at Ticketmaster.com.
