The Pains of Being Pure at Heart announce summer tour

on May 04, 2011, 9:26am

On the heels of lauded sophomore album Belong, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have a new reputation to live up to, namely flag bearers of neo-shoegaze. The New Yorkers will defend that reputation on a new string of North American summer tour dates.

Sandwiched between appearances at Osheaga and Lollapalooza, The Pains will be joined by Craft Spells on a short tour of the heartland. The band plays Osheaga July 31st, and stops in Toronto for the first of these gigs. On the way to the Windy City, the band hits venues in Pontiac, Michigan, Newport, Kentucky, and St. Louis. Following Lollapalooza, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have a final scheduled show in Pittsburgh on August 9th.

New Yorkers can also catch the band in their hometown this Friday, May 6th at Webster Hall with indie rockers Twin Shadow. Get tickets for that show on Seatgeek now; other tickets go on sale this week.
