Chinese Stars Drop Album Number Three, Announce Canada/U.S. Dates with Six Finger Satellite
Providence, Rhode Island quintet the Chinese Stars formed from the ashes of noise rock icons Arab on Radar and Six Finger Satellite in 2003, but have since developed into a pulsating, four-on-the-floor dance rock clan. The band's last album, Listen to Your Left Brain, was released in 2007, and now they're all set for their third album.

Titled Heaven on Speed Dial, the record hits the marketplace today (October 13), marking the band's first release for Anchor Brain Records. And if lead track "Rabbit Face" is any indication, they're returning to their noisy roots. Seriously, get excited, folks, and check out the track here.

To celebrate the album's release, the band have announced a massive North American tour. The shows, which take up the majority of autumn, will see them playing with Six Finger Satellite on five dates. The tour will find the Chinese Stars play Canadian shows in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
