Published Jan 21, 2011On March 15, eclectic Vancouver pop crew Mother Mother will release their third LP, Eureka, an album that we previously named one of our most anticipated Canadian albums of 2011. That's why we're excited to report that the band will heading out on the road before the album is released to play a number of North American dates.
The brief outing will kick off in West Vancouver on February 11. From there, the band will head down the coast for a handful of U.S. shows before returning to BC for three more Canadian dates. In March, Mother Mother will also hit up two of North America's biggest festivals: Canadian Music Week in Toronto and SXSW in Austin, TX.
Along the way, they're sure to play cuts from the upcoming Eureka. This includes the new single "The Stand," which dropped earlier this month. Scroll past the tour dates to watch an interview with the band about the new song, which includes clips from the music video.
