Tegan & Sara will celebrate New Year in Canada

on October 02, 2009, 10:05am

With their Sainthood looming, Tegan & Sara have embarked on a serious publicity push.

First and foremost, the twin duo has mapped out a month long Canadian tour — Yes, Canada, you’re getting the love this time! — to begin at the start of the New Year. The trek, which will follow a pair of previously reported warm up shows in Los Angeles and New York, a November 2nd appearance on Conan O’Brien, and a European tour with CoS favorite Astronautalis, will featuring the supporting talents of An Horse. Tickets for the dates will go on sale beginning today via Ticketmaster.com.

A yet-to-be-announced U.S. leg of dates will follow in February.

As if all that wasn’t exciting enough, Tegan & Sara have also announced plans for the release of a three book set written… by… them. The books, titled On, In, At, are said to chronicle different time periods from the past year of the band members’ lives: the 2008 US national tour, the 2009 Australian tour, and a joint writing session in New Orleans for the new album. They will be released in conjunction with the new album, available as a standard or deluxe bundle. Find more details and configurations at teganandsara.com.

Sainthood hits stores on October 27th via Sire.
