Needles//Pins Roll Out Canadian Tour
Needles//Pins will bang out their peppy new tunes at a record release show May 26 at Vancouver's Astoria Hotel, but their "It's 12:34 Somewhere" trip won't actually start for another couple of weeks. The first proper gig of the tour takes place June 7 at Edmonton's Wunderbar, and from there they will head out as far east as Montreal before winding the trip up with a series of TBA shows at Sled Island. You can see the detailed tour itinerary down below.
As previously reported, 12:34 arrives June 1 through Mammoth Cave Recording Co., and right now you can preview some tracks from the record below. Also, their upcoming La-Ti-Da Records seven-inch, which will feature new number "Getting on Home" on the A-side and a cover of Teenage Head's "Picture My Face" on the flip, should hit store shelves sometime this summer.
