Following last year’s titillating “Summer Crushes” tour, Mates of State are jumping back on the road to support their first full-length LP in three years, Mountaintops. So far the plan is to drop the sword swallowers and contortionists of yesteryear to allow a more mild-mannered float into the fall.

July and August are pretty slow for the modern pop duo, with only two gigs booked: Escape to New York in Southampton, NY and St. John’s Block Party in Rochester, MN. However, after their seventh album drops on September 13th (via Barsuk Records), expect the rest of autumn to be a blur of North American cities, including stops at MidPoint Music Festival, Langerado Festival and Voodoo Experience. Better yet, the headlining shows feature support from Suckers and Other Lives.

A complete list of their summer and fall dates are below, as is a video for the album cut, “Maracas”.
