Published Jul 08, 2010Mice Parade aren't your average, mopey post-rock naval-gazers. Founded by drummer Adam Piece, the band are well known for their percussive jams, bringing along two drum kits and a pile of percussive instruments to their live shows. This September, audiences will get a chance to experience the beat-filled spectacle in person once again, as the band have announced plans to tour North America.
All of the dates currently booked are in the eastern half of the continent, including a show in Toronto and an appearance at Pop Montreal. West coast and European dates will reportedly follow shortly.
The tour will be in support of their previously announced eighth album, What It Means to Be Left-Handed, due out September 14 via FatCat.
According to a press release, the record features "Pierce's trademark stormy, intricate percussion, as well as melodic interweaving and warm, resonant vocal treatments." That sounds like an apt description of the collection's sunny first single, "In Between Times." Click on the embedded video at the bottom of the page to take a listen.
