Caribou Gets Big World Tour
 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

Caribou is the vehicle of electronic experimentalist Dan Snaith. Dan was apparently very busy at the end of 2007 setting up a big, BIG Caribou tour for 2008. He's playing shows in Japan, Australia, Europe, Canada, and the U.S. over the next five months. 2008 could be the year of the Caribou.

 

There's no word yet on any new material from Caribou, so it looks like this tour will be in support of last year's release of Andorra, which was released in August of last year. You can check out the song Melody Day courtesy of City Slang at the link below.

 

After originally creating music under the name Manitoba, Dan was served legal notice in 2004 by Dick Manitoba's private investigator thug to change names or see him in court. Although Dan thinks he could have won, he decided to take the path of least resistance and change the name of the project to Caribou.
