Published Jan 22, 2013Montreal's Elephant Stone announced the February due date of their self-titled sophomore set back in November, and the hypnotic psych-pop players have now revealed tour dates behind the LP.
A press release confirms that shortly after the album's February 5 release on Hidden Pony, Elephant Stone will play a few home-province clubs. After that, they'll make their way down to Texas in March for South by Southwest, which apparently includes an opening spot supporting the Zombies, before heading to Toronto for CMW.
The bulk of the dates, however, figure in an April trip around North America with fellow psych crew the Black Angels. Sadly for us, there is only one Canadian date scheduled on the tag-team trip, which will take place April 13 at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall. You can see all the details down below.
Don't forget that while Elephant Stone arrives digitally and on CD February 5 via Hidden Pony, February 12 will see the album delivered on vinyl courtesy of the Reverberation Appreciation Society and on cassette through Burger Records.
