Moon Duo Take 'Shadow of the Sun' on World Tour, Share New Video
While Moon Duo's next LP suggests the band may be standing in the Shadow of the Sun throughout 2015, the psych explorers have now revealed they'll also be bathing beneath the glow of stage lights this spring on an upcoming tour.

The band revealed their tour schedule today (January 14), with the globe-trotting trip starting out in Fargo, MN, a few days before the new record hits stores March 3 through Sacred Bones. As you'll discover in the itinerary down below, the trip has Moon Duo travelling up into Canada for appearances in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. They later cross the water for a month's worth of dates in Europe.

As previously reported, Moon Duo's third full-length effort has Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada joined by new drummer John Jeffrey, with the album said to present "off-kilter dance rhythms, repetitive, grinding riffs, cosmic trucker boogies" and more.

The record had previously been previewed with an audio stream of the dark and punky "Animal," which has now received a video treatment starring professional skateboarder Richie Jackson. You'll find the guy performing kick-flips with pitchforks and wall-rides with abandoned computer keyboards down below.
