Gardens & Villa Add North American Dates, Unveil New Video

Coming off last week's release of Dunes, '80s pop-loving California crew Gardens & Villa have now unveiled an additional batch of North American tour dates to help support the album.

As previously reported, the band just started up the first leg of the tour last week, and will be hitting up Canada in March with shows in Toronto and Montreal in March. A press release now confirms that the act have tacked on a run of shows over in Europe this spring alongside Broken Bells, as well as an extra stretch of concerts on their own in North America. With Canada in mind, this now means the band will make it to Vancouver, where they'll play Fortune Sound Club on May 14. You'll find all of the updated tour info down below.

In addition to the tour news, the band have also just unveiled a video for Dunes's first single, "Bullet Train." At times, the vintage-looking set of visuals take a performance-based direction, with the quintet huddling around vintage drum pads and keyboards in front of a VHS-snow-riddled green screen, though a few narratives are thrown in to keep things wacky.

Witness, if you will, the school girl apparently playing hooky from school to hop aboard a beach-bound subway. While that seems to fit the song title, we're a little more confused about the guy walking around the neighbourhood in Laurie Anderson's Big Science suit, brandishing a mystical floppy disk.

You can check out the stylized set of retro visuals beneath the tour dates.
