Cloud Cult hitting the road for fall tour

on September 07, 2010, 4:00pm

Experimental art-rockers Cloud Cult have announced the official release date of their new album, Light Chasers. The album has been available digitally for “friends and close fans” on the band’s official website since June 28th, but the rest of us can get our hands on the physical release on September 14th via Earthology Records. A headlining fall tour has also been announced in support of the new album.

The 16-track album is the band’s ninth studio album and its first release since the 2009 double-disc reissue of They Live on the Sun and Aurora Borealis.

In support of the release, the band led by Craig Minowa will hit the road for a fall tour of the US starting on September 9th in Northfield, MN. The third date of the endeavor promises to be a particularly special affair, taking place at eTown in Boulder, CO. It doesn’t sound special in itself, but the performance will be recorded in front of the live audience and broadcast coast-to-coast on NPR/public, commercial, and community radio stations. The band will then play several dates, including Bozeman and Missoula in Montana, Seattle, San Francisco, and LA before heading east for dates in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York. The tour will wrap up with two CD release shows in the band’s hometown of Minneapolis.

Tickets can be found on Ticketmaster for select dates.
