Handsome Furs add dates to summer tour

on June 02, 2011, 9:01am

If there’s a silver lining to the indefinite hiatus of Wolf Parade, it’s that members Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner can champion their burgeoning side projects. Krug’s band Sunset Rubdown and Boeckner’s Handsome Furs both released stellar albums in 2009. Now, Boeckner and wife/Furs bandmate Alexei Perry will progress onwards with their 3rd LP Sound Kapital, due out June 28th with a solid summer of touring supporting the release.

In addition to the previously announced dates, Handsome Furs dropped some late-summer dates for the second leg of their tour. Starting August 17th, Boeckner and and Perry will return to the road hitting U.S. venues on the East and West coast with several connecting stops in between. The band’s website indicates that ticketing information for the new dates will be available shortly on the band’s Facebook page, but you can grab tickets the previously announced show here.

Not to reopen this wound, but Wolf Parade did purportedly play their “indefinite” final shows last weekend at the Sasquatch! Music Festival and at a headlining show in Vancouver. For their swan song, the band and a grip of fans joined together for the inimitable finale, “Knockin’ On Heavens Door”. Check out the last strains of Boeckner and Krug below (via Prefix).
