Alberta Cross and Dead Confederate pal up for co-headling tour

on July 19, 2010, 9:45am

Considering they almost became no-man’s land, Arizona’s had a pretty good week. While they’re still not getting a Bright Eyes show or MGMT, Dr. Dog and Azure Ray announced tour dates in the Copper State, and now they have this to celebrate:

Alberta Cross has announced new co-headlining dates (including two in Arizona) with Athens, Ga.-based Dead Confederate for what they’re calling the “DC/AC” tour. It starts in Portland, Ore. On September 6th and makes it’s way as far south as Solona Beach, Calif. The journey then takes the bands west for two dates in the desert before sending up them up the Colorado Rockies and the through the Midwest before wrapping up in Bean Town almost three weeks later.

Despite it’s brevity, the tour finds the bands joining forces at the most opportune time. Dead Confederate wraps up tours with Deer Tick and Surfer Blood on August 5th, and the short, 15-date-expedition also begins one night after Alberta Cross’ three-night stand at the Gorge Amphitheatre supporting Dave Matthews Band.

While Alberta Cross is still touring behind their debut full-length, Broken Side of Time, the lads from The Peach State will be celebrating the release of their new, John Angello produced, J.Mascis-featuring album, Sugar (out August 24th via TAO Recordings). In a recent video, the band joked that the new set of songs would, “cure every disease, and grant every possible wish you may have.”
