Peeps in the Pacific Northwest will be lucky enough to get a chance to to check out the Dandy Warhols play a few shows in June in the Oregon-Washington-British Columbia part of the world. The tour is in support of the recently released of Earth to the Dandy Warhols. They're playing with the Upsidedown and the Monstrous depending on location, and it will be the first chance to hear the new material performed live.
The band is also working on a full set of tour dates for the rest of the year, with a new stage set-up for the live experience.
"We've lined up some warm up gigs here in the Northwest to get us ready for our July European run. I know, I know... when are we visiting the rest of the states, Australia, Mexico etc. Due time my friends, in due time. The fall will be stacked with gigs and everyone will get their chance. We're doing it mega right this time. We dropped a pretty penny on a new light set up that is going to blow your minds. New tunes, new lights... " reads a statement from the band.
The band is currently streaming the album on their web site and offering a download of the song The World The People Together (Come On).
The ever-inventive Dandys are also experimenting with a new subscription service that gives members access to items beyond the scope of just the songs on the album.
"On May 19, 2008, you will be able to buy and download the whole enchilada, ...Earth To The Dandy Warhols..., as part of our new subscription service that will include exclusive digital audio content for one year, including new b-sides and live tracks," reads the announcement from the band.
The band has also been busy launching its own recording label through World's Fair and generally plotting the next phase of the Dandy Warhols revolution.
