Gobble Gobble Launch Sprawling North American Tour

Gobble Gobble Launch Sprawling North American Tour

Edmonton electro-pop monsters Gobble Gobble did a few laps around North America on last year's Mobile Rave Infinitour, but that five-month jaunt apparently wasn't enough to tire them out, as the quartet spearheaded by Cecil Frena have revealed another gigantic batch of dates.

The run of shows kicked off in Calgary last night (February 24) and continues west through BC before the band pop into the United States for shows with Baths and Braids en route to SXSW. From there, Gobble Gobble will destroy house parties and regular venues across the U.S. with their ecstatic dance parties that pass off as shows. Other Canadian dates include a run through Ontario in April, as well as shows in Winnipeg and Saskatoon.

Gobble Gobble have also completed recording their new album, which follows their excellent Neon Graveyard released last year. The album title, record label and release date are all forthcoming, so for now you will have to try and pry information from the band at their shows. As previously reported, Gobble side-project Purity Ring have their debut seven-inch coming in late March.
