This morning, the New Jersey (and fucking proud of it, dude) band announced a six-week tour—"Monitour," obviously—that will take them across the country and back again. In a post on the band's blog, frontman Patrick Stickles went looking for places to sleep and for some help booking shows for the handful of off-days in their schedule. It's nice to see a band, especially one signed to a label as big-time as XL, understand the value of hitting the road and getting in front of as many people as possible. Also, of screaming.
We New Yorkers will get a chance to see them on 3/6 at Bowery Ballroom, with Parts and Labor. Then on 4/24, they're at Maxwell's, and that shit is gonna be bananas. The rest of the dates can be found here. [via Pitchfork]
