The Vaselines Announce Tour Dates

The Vaselines Announce Tour Dates
If you missed the Vaselines' first round of reunion dates, good news: the Scottish twee pop duo are coming back to North America. In May, the influential twosome will play a handful of dates in the U.S. and one in Toronto on May 15, marking their first Canadian show in decades.

The brief tour comes as the Vaselines are set to release their massive retrospective set, Enter the Vaselines, which is due out via Sub Pop on May 5. As previously reported, the two-CD/three-LP release comes packing basically all the band's recorded studio output, as well as some previously unreleased demos and live recordings, taped in Bristol in 1986 and London in 1988.
