Published Mar 29, 2012Buzz is currently building for gloomy UK sister duo 2:54. First off, the act will deliver their self-titled full-length debut on May 28 through Fat Possum, and shortly thereafter, they'll cross the pond for their first North American headlining tour.
The duo will kick off a UK trip next week, but they'll head overseas in early June. The 15-date North American trip starts at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory on June 9, and 2:54 will hit up three Canadian cities by the time the jaunt wraps up.
Along the way, they'll play Montreal's Divan Orange (June 14), Toronto's Lee's Palace (June 15) and Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret (June 23). Brooklyn's Widowspeak will act as support on the bulk North American dates. You can check out the details down below.
Earlier this month, the duo premiered new track "You're Early," which showed off 2:54's affinity for blending "dance floor rhythms" with desert rock, and they've now unleashed a video for the number. You can also check it out at the bottom of the page, and check out their newly unveiled album cover above.
