Islands Announce Their Vapours Tour, Play Vancouver and Toronto

Islands Announce Their <i>Vapours</i> Tour, Play Vancouver and Toronto

Following word that their Vapours album is heading our way this fall, Islands have announced the album's supporting live dates. Getting their touring ball rolling good and proper at the end of September, the forward-thinking Montreal popsters will hit up a number of North American locales, swinging through Toronto on October 14 and Vancouver on October 20.

Contrary to our previous report though, Islands have done a bit of rescheduling and are no longer opening for the joint Happy Mondays/Psychedelic Furs tour stop in Montreal on October 15. However, they will be serving as the bands' openers on that Toronto date.

As we told you a little while back, Vapours is due out September 22 via Anti- and comes with the above cover art. You can check out new teaser track "No You Don't" over here in Click Hear.
