Published Dec 12, 2011Having recently unveiled the details of their forthcoming album No One Can Ever Know, emotive Scots the Twilight Sad have announced plans to bring their dramatic sounds on a North American tour.
The trek will begin just a couple of weeks after the album arrives on February 7 via FatCat Records. The band will be coming to 16 cities across North America. This includes two Canadian stops: Montreal on February 28 and Toronto on February 29 (yup, 2012 is a leap year). The trip wraps up with a trip to SXSW in Austin, TX, in March.
According to a press release, No One Can Ever Know was inspired by artists like Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Liars, Magazine, Autechre, and Public Image Limited, resulting in a "dark, synth-heavy sound." Scroll past the tour dates to check out the first single "Sick."
