Published Jul 19, 2010Having recently announced that new LP Penny Sparkle is on the way in September, Blonde Redhead will be hitting the road this fall. We've already reported on the group's upcoming European tour; now, we can confirm that the band will be rounding out the year with a North American tour.
The tour currently only has nine confirmed dates, but there are doubtlessly more on the way, since these are stretched out over more than a month. There are two Canadian dates already booked: Toronto on October 17 and Vancouver on November 21. Tickets for these dates go on sale later this week over at Ticketmaster.
Stay tuned for more show announcements and album info. In the meantime, you can listen to the band's latest single, "Here Sometimes," in the embedded video below the dates.
UPDATE: Brooklyn Vegan has dug up more North American tour dates, which now include a stop in Montreal. Plus, German minimal techo whiz Pantha Du Prince is opening many of the dates.
