Dirty Projectors to Take 'Swing Lo Magellan' Across North America

Dirty Projectors to Take 'Swing Lo Magellan' Across North America

Brooklyn-based pop experimentalists Dirty Projectors thrilled their devoted last week when they finally announced Swing Lo Magellan, the follow-up to their celebrated 2009 disc Bitte Orca. The band are no doubt thrilling their fans even further by announcing a round of tour dates in support of the upcoming LP, due July 10 through Domino.

The troupe's North American trip starts up on our side of the border at the Ottawa Bluesfest on July 5, and will make its way to Toronto and Montreal with Edmonton's Purity Ring supporting before sauntering down south. Dirty Projectors will make their way back into Canada mid-trip when they hit up Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom on July 24, but they'll head back into the U.S. and wrap things up in Philadelphia mid-August.
