Published May 16, 2012On top of dishing the dirt on their new LP 12:34, Vancouver-based pop punk trio Needles//Pins recently explained to Exclaim! that they would be hitting the road this June to support the upcoming album. While their tour schedule was still in the works at the time, the band have now revealed the dates.
Needles//Pins will bang out their peppy new tunes at a record release show May 26 at Vancouver's Astoria Hotel, but their "It's 12:34 Somewhere" trip won't actually start for another couple of weeks. The first proper gig of the tour takes place June 7 at Edmonton's Wunderbar, and from there they will head out as far east as Montreal before winding the trip up with a series of TBA shows at Sled Island. You can see the detailed tour itinerary down below.
As previously reported, 12:34 arrives June 1 through Mammoth Cave Recording Co., and right now you can preview some tracks from the record below. Also, their upcoming La-Ti-Da Records seven-inch, which will feature new number "Getting on Home" on the A-side and a cover of Teenage Head's "Picture My Face" on the flip, should hit store shelves sometime this summer.
