Mercury Rev Announce Tour

Mercury Rev Announce Tour
As Mercury Rev get set to drop their new electronically charged full-length Snowflake Midnight on September 30, the trio are doing what most bands do about this time — line up a tour. Starting things off at this year’s ATP festival in New York, Mercury Rev will set out for two months of good, solid touring, dropping by Europe, the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Sweetening the deal, ex-Luna/Galaxie 500 man Dean Wareham and his belle Britta Phillips will be joining the Rev for a handful of North American dates, which find them together in Montreal December 8 and in Toronto December 9. Now if they all don’t gather onstage for a rendition of "Car Wash Hair,” it’s going to be a tragedy.
