Willis Earl Beal Gears Up for Canada/U.S. Tour

Willis Earl Beal Gears Up for Canada/U.S. Tour
Bummed-out acoustic up-and-comer Willis Earl Beal will release his debut album Acousmatic Sorcery on April 3 via the XL imprint Hot Charity. To promote the LP, he has now fleshed out his North American tour schedule.

In addition to his already-announced gigs, Beal has scheduled some additional U.S. shows plus a new Canadian date: May 5 at the Biltmore in Vancouver. Beal's spring outing also includes a number of gigs with SBTRKT, although these are all in the U.S., so you're going to need to head south of the border if you want to see that stacked bill.

See the schedule below, and scroll past the dates to watch the hand drawn video for Beal's single "Evening's Kiss."
