Published Oct 10, 2007Pending anymore visits to the hospital, punk pop trio the Cribs will tour North America this fall to support their latest release, Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever, the group's third studio album. Vocalist/guitarist Ryan Jarman was sent to the emergency room after he passed out during a show in Birmingham, England on October 5, but not before he was revived and finished the show. In a twist of fate, twin brother Gary Jarman was admitted to the hospital two days later following a show in Sheffield, England. Complaining of pain in his arms, after some tests were done it turned out to be blood poisoning resulting from cuts caused by his bass guitar strings. Both brothers have been given clean bills of health (drummer and third brother Ross Jarman is "great and isn't particularly bothered by anything," according to the band's publicist) and are ready to begin their next tour, which starts on November 12 in Montreal and ends in Vancouver, where the band recorded Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever with producer Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand.
The tour dates:
11/12 - Montreal QC, Cabaret
11/13 - Ottawa ON, Capital Music Hall
11/14 - Toronto ON, Horseshoe Tavern
11/23 - Edmonton AB, Starlite Room
11/24 - Calgary AB, Hi-Fi Club
