With Spoon‘s seventh studio album, Transference, now due out in a little over a week (but you can stream now!), the Austin outfit has wasted no time kicking the publicity train into high gear. Today, Britt Daniel and Co. unveiled a lengthy Spring tour in support of the January 19th release.
The month long endeavor will kick off with an appearance at South by Southwest, where the Spoon will, well, kick off the Austin based festival’s festivities at Stubb’s on March 17th. In the days that follow, the band will head east for a series of dates, highlighted by their first ever headlining performance at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. After that, they’ll circle back west, stopping in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Denver along the way, before ultimately concluding their travels on April 13th in Oakland, California. But being another one of those bands with a Los Angeles tour date noticeably missing from its itinerary, it’s safe to assume Spoon will continue on to the Coachella Music Festival, set to take place from April 16-18 in Indio, CA.
Deerhunter will be providing direct support on all dates, while Royal Oak, The Strange Boys, and Micachu & the Shapes will be appearing on select dates.
Tickets will be available beginning Friday, January 15th via Ticketmaster.com.
Transference is set for release on January 19th via Merge.
