Published Jun 24, 2010Following our report in March that New York neo-disco outfit Hercules and Love Affair were finished recording a new album, the collective has announced a short, Canada-friendly North American tour later this summer, and a tentative release date for that anticipated sophomore full-length.
Hercules and Love Affair will play a series of European dates before hitting North American shores in Toronto on July 26. The tour will stop in Montreal the following night and will return to Canada in Vancouver on August 10.
The band's press release notes that the second album, which is still untitled, is scheduled for a tentative September release. The album reportedly features a rotating cast of guest vocalists, including Bloc Party's Kele Okereke and two new vocalists: Shaun Wright and Aerea Negrot.
It also hints that Hercules and Love Affair may preview the new album on tour, so you might want to be there. The band's complete touring schedule is below.
