Strokes' Nick Valensi Takes CRX on North American Tour

Strokes' Nick Valensi Takes CRX on North American Tour
The Strokes returned with new material this year in the form of their Future Present Past EP, but that didn't stop guitarist Nick Valensi from embarking on a new side-project under the CRX banner. The group's Josh Homme-produced debut album New Skin is set to arrive later this month, and to support its release, the band will be hitting the road.
 
CRX have mapped out a fall tour that kicks off in Denver on November 7. It will wind its way up to Canada for shows in Toronto on November 14 and Vancouver on November 30, before the full run of shows wraps up on December 17 in Las Vegas.

Streets of Laredo, the Gloomies and Dead Heavens serve as the supporting acts throughout the tour. See the full list of upcoming dates below.
 
As previously reported, New Skin is due out on October 28 through Columbia.
