White Stripes Announce Tour Dates, Release Icky Thump Single

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
The White Stripes are setting out to go where no Stripe has ever gone before. Their newly announced set of tour dates sees them spending a lot of time in Canada, actually covering all of Canada.

“Having never done a full tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog. We want to take this tour to the far reaches of the Canadian landscape. From the ocean to the permafrost. The best way for us to do that is ensure that we perform in every province and territory in the country, from the Yukon to Prince Edward Island. Another special moment of this tour is the show which will occur in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia on July 14th, The White Stripes’ Tenth Anniversary,” said Jack White, in response to the announcement.

Don't worry, they'll hit the U.S. and Europe too. In the U.S. they've announced shows for 16 states they've never been to before, with more dates to be added at a later time. Europe gets to see them first with shows in the beginning of June.

In other White Stripes news, they just released the advance single, Icky Thump, from the upcoming album of the same name on iTunes. You can hear it now on Spacelab Radio.

The full album Icky Thump will be released on June 19th via Warner Brothers.
