By Josiah HughesFollowing the wild and intimate in-store performances on his recent record store tour, Memphis garage punk tyrant Jay Reatard has announced another set of North American tour dates. This time, he'll be bringing most of his Shattered Records roster along with him.
Joined by Nobunny, Hunx & His Punx and Box Elders on all dates, the bands will meet up with both Useless Eaters and Digital Leather in different cities.
The tour kicks off in Chicago on September 28, and sees the bands play a decent number of North American cities, including Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal. You can also download a free sampler, dishing out one track by each band on the tour, over here.
