With November already half way over, it’s probably not too early to begin considering a New Year’s resolution. This year, instead of promising to work out more often, eat more nutritiously, or give up your most favored vice, take a tip from Sweden’s The Concretes, and plan a nice, long international trip. Just one week after the indie-pop outfit dropped WYWH, their first release in three years, they revealed a 16-date trek across the US and Canada.
Taking place between January and March, The Concretes will break their North American tour into two parts. Beginning January 14th, they will make their way across the Midwest, East Coast and Canada, including a stop at Chicago’s wintry Tomorrow Never Knows Fest. After about a month break, they’ll conclude the tour with a stint of West Coast appearances.
The complete list of tour dates is below, but before you scroll down, check out the music video for “All Day”.
