Cornershop Announce First Tour in a Million Years

08/31/2010 3:55 PM |


Eight years, to be exact — at least as far as a U.S. tour is concerned. They probably got so excited about Pitchfork naming the Fatboy Slim remix of “Brimful of Asha” the 113th best song of the 90s that they couldn’t help but travel overseas to play for us poor souls. On November 19, they’ll swing by Irving Plaza in support of their latest album, Judy Sucks a Lemon for Breakfast, which sounds a lot like Beulah but with, you know, sitars. Ah, sweet, sweet pop music. All tour dates after the jump, as are videos for the song “Soul School” from Judy and a hamster singing “Brimful of Asha.” Ah, sweet, sweet Internet.
