Published Aug 07, 2008As Deerhunter wait until Halloween to drop their upcoming Microcastle, the art-rockin Georgians have lined up quite the string of fall tour dates. Starting with a hometown show in Atlanta, the band will be trekking across North America until December, making stops in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto along the way.
Deerhunter are also bringing along some impressive tour support this time out. On various dates, Pylon, BARR and Vivian Girls are set to open for Deerhunter, while the much-loved lo-fi kids of Times New Viking will be the groups constant companion throughout the tour, making all the dates a nice package deal.
As we previously reported, Microcastle is set to drop October 28 via Kranky in North America and on 4AD everywhere else. The bands sophomore effort will also be preceded by a limited edition seven-inch, which includes the tracks "Nothing Ever Happened and "Neither of Us, Uncertainly.
