The Drums Announce North American Fall Tour, Sign to Frenchkiss Records
The Drums have admitted that they recently almost broke up, but that isn't stopping the '80s-indebted pop outfit from booking a lengthy North American tour in support of their sophomore album, Portamento.

Following a number of international festival dates in the summer, the outing will begin in earnest this fall. The band will hit up both coasts of North America, making several U.S. stops. They will also play three Canadian shows: Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

See the schedule below, and scroll down to check out the video for the new single "Money."

Along with the tour, Drums have announced via their website that Portamento will come out in North America on September 13 via their new label home of Frenchkiss. This will be the Drums' first album for the imprint, which is also home to Passion Pit, the Dodos and the Antlers, among others.
