Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band tour in support of sophomore release

on August 26, 2010, 2:40pm

Earlier this month, the Seattle-based Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band delivered its highly awaited sophomore release, Where the Messengers Meet. For the quartet, the album’s polished production was a move in the right direction, but we were left wanting a little more of the energy from their earlier efforts. So as the foursome begin packing for their upcoming US tour, we hope they remember to bring the energy that first captured our attention.

After performing with The Head & The Heart for their hometown audience August 27th, MSHVB will begin a stretch of six dates with support from David Bazan. The tour then continues through the midwest and along the east coast with psych-rockers Dead Confederate. On October 5th, MSHVB’s longtime friends Portugal. The Man will replace Dead Confederate for the southern leg of the tour (odd given the band’s perfect southern moniker). The tour winds down with stops in Birmingham, Athens, Asheville, Nashville, and Lawrence, KS. Look at the complete list of stops below to discover where you can meet the messengers.

Check out a preview of Portugal. The Man’s newest video below for “Guns and Dogs”; it actually stars MSHVB’s Traci Eggelston.
