The Duke Spirit Set Out to Capture America
on Ted Leo Tour

The British are coming!! The British are coming!! London based band The Duke Spirit are now confirmed on U.S. tour dates in March, in support of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. Their tour will include a lot of stops in the northeast, the midwest, and the now standard SXSW Music Festival. It will be the band's second visit to SXSW.

The band sounds like a heady mix of a jangly, lurching Velvet Underground covering the Rolling Stones in William Burrough's apartment. It comes across sounding confident and driving. Check out the MP3 link below to hear what I'm talking about.

The Duke Spirit will be releasing a full length album titled Cuts Across the Land on March 7th. The album was produced by Simon Raymonde ( of the Cocteau Twins) and FLOOD (of FLOOD, you know, the producer).
