Unknown Mortal Orchestra Take 'II' on North American Tour, Play Toronto, Montreal
The North American trek begins in mid-February and will see Unknown Mortal Orchestra travelling all over the U.S. with Foxygen and Wampire. They will also head north into Canada and hit up Toronto and Montreal in early March.
Prior to this leg, the band will play some shows in New Zealand (where frontman Ruban Nielson is originally from) in December and January. In early February, they will perform a few international shows in Japan and Europe as well. See the full schedule below.
You can pre-order II on standard CD or vinyl, or as a deluxe bundle, right here. The bundle includes the CD and LP versions of II, plus a 7-inch single, two different art posters, a temporary tattoo and an early download of the entire album on January 10.
For a taste of the band's live sound, they are sharing their entire live set from this past year's Pygmalion Festival in Illinois. Listen over at RBMA Radio.
