Titus Andronicus Play Canada on North American Tour, Book Shows with Bright Eyes

Titus Andronicus Play Canada on North American Tour, Book Shows with Bright Eyes
Titus Andronicus started 2011 off on a sour note, announcing the departure of bassist Ian Graetzer. The Civil War-loving indie rockers aren't letting that get them down, however, as they've now booked a lengthy spring tour that will take them all around North America and includes a handful of dates with Bright Eyes.

Following a March tour with the Pogues, Titus Andronicus will embark on a jaunt of their own. They will be busy playing shows from February until the end of April, with three Canadian dates: Montreal on March 31, Toronto on April 1 and Vancouver on April 8. The Vancouver show is one of five gigs with Bright Eyes.

This tour will presumably feature a slightly different Titus Andronicus lineup, as they have now had a month to find a replacement for Graetzer. Hopefully, this doesn't alter the quality of the band's future material, since last year's The Monitor earned a spot on our list of the top pop & rock albums of 2010.
