Published Dec 29, 2009Last month, we reported that jangly Texas garage pop crew the Strange Boys would be releasing their sophomore album, Be Brave, this February. Now, we've learned that the band have recruited some exciting new band members, and will be embarking on a North American tour.
As Brooklyn Vegan points out, the Strange Boys have obtained two members of now-defunct L.A. punks Mika Miko. Those members are vocalist Jenna Thornhill-DeWitt and drummer Seth Densham, who are now both full-fledged Strange Boys.
Be Brave is due out on February 23 via In the Red in North America and Rough Trade worldwide. Around the same time, the band will embark on a North American tour with support from Ian Svenious's latest post-punk project, Chain and the Gang. Both bands will hit up Vancouver with a show on March 5.
