The Head and the Heart Head Off on North American Tour

The Head and the Heart Head Off on North American Tour
Seattle's the Head and the Heart are doing well for themselves these days. Not only are the folk outfit signed to Sub Pop, but they've just announced their first headlining tour.

Considering that this is the first time they've travelled North America as a headliner, it's shaping up to be an impressively large-scale jaunt. They've recruited Thao with the Get Down Stay Down as openers for the fall run of shows, and the Head and the Heart will be hitting up some big venues along the way. This includes the Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom on October 20.

Before that, the band will make another Canadian stop at the Calgary Folk Music Festival on July 23 and 24. They will also being opening several U.S. shows for the Decemberists this summer.

It's possible that more Canuck dates will be unveiled, since the band have promised that additional dates will be added. They wrote on Facebook, "We can't announce everything yet, so there'll be a few more shows announced in the coming weeks." See what they call a "basic sketch" of a schedule below.
