Published Feb 11, 2014UK rock troupe Elbow have announced they'll be crossing the pond this spring for a North American tour in support of their forthcoming sixth studio album, now named The Take Off and Landing of Everything.
The act arrives on our shores this May, starting the trip off in Washington, DC. There are two Canadian dates to report, with Elbow playing Toronto's Danforth Music Hall on May 17 and Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom May 23. You can find all the details of the impending North American tour down below, and check out the band's international schedule here.
While it had initially been reported in the fall that the Manchester group's follow-up to Build a Rocket Boys! would be called Carry Her Carry Me, the act announced the album title change last month. Of the title swap, frontman Guy Garvey explained to Q: "It always happens this. The title's now from a song on there; this huge, cacophonous thing born of our love for space rock, prog, Primal Scream and Spiritualized."
As previously reported, the album was tracked at both Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in Bath and at the band's own Blueprint Studios in Salford, England. Produced by keyboardist Craig Potter, The Take Off and Landing of Everything hits North American retailers March 11 through Fiction/Concord Music Group.
