With Concepts, Little Girls' debut full-length for Paper Bag Records, just around the corner, Toronto, ON lo-fi pop mastermind Josh McIntyre has announced a hefty North American tour for his project.
The dates, which kick off tonight in Windsor, ON, will see him joined by a rotating cast of bloggable bands like You Say Party! We Say Die!, Japandroids, Monotonix, Think About Life and even a show with Wavves.
Even better, the hype hasn't made McIntyre forget his home and native land, with a majority of the dates covering Canadian regions. The tour gets going with a hefty amount of Ontario and Quebec dates and then, after a brief stint in the U.S., includes a large chunk of You Say Party! We Say Die!'s Canadian tour.
As well, Little Girls have just released a cover of "Heinz," originally performed by UK post-punks Artery. The track can be snatched up here.
