Tegan and Sara
 
 

Tegan and Sara’s Summer Tour to Support album THE CON

 

By: Christy Mannering
When twins Tegan and Sara were born the world had to start preparing for what a sensation they would become. Fans have been hoping to hear the new songs from THE CON since the album's release date is July 24th courtesy of Vapor Records.

Tegan and Sara are anything but ordinary on stage, which is probably why they have shared the limelight with acts such as The Killers, Neil Young, Ryan Adams and Ben Folds. Fans of the duo know to act fast when a show comes to town.

When tickets went on sale May 11th there was such an influx of orders that the group found themselves having to add shows. They'll be in Tegan’s hometown of Vancouver, Canada on July 16th; that show sold out within twenty-four hours. Reaching beyond home and out into the US, eight of their gigs sold out in six different states within three days.  An extra date has been added to both New York and Vancouver. Though no dates have been released, a national theatre tour should begin sometime in October.

THE CON will be Tegan and Sara’s fifth full length album of their career.  It was co-produced in Oregon by Christopher Walla (Death Cab for Cutie, The Decemberists) in Walla’s recording studio. Oddly enough the sisters decided to write this album from different locations, while they spent time apart after their So Jealous tour in 2004. The folks at Vapor Records have said the new album “is sure to be a Super Banger of a record.” They have even gone so far as to say this may be the best record Tegan and Sara have made to date. Continue racing to the ticket lines, you do NOT want to miss this tour!
