Spoon have announced a big set of tour dates for this Spring, and they're bringing Deerhunter with them. This could be one of the best tour combinations of the year! Royal Oak, the Strange Boys, Micachu and the Shapes get various opening spots along the way, but it's basically a Spoon and Deerhunter tour.
Not only are they kicking it off with a show in Austin at Stubb’s on March 17th for SXSW, but they're doing a bunch of two-night appearances in select cities. They've even landed their first-ever headlining slot at New York's Radio City Music Hall.
We'll get our first live performance with a January 19th appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.
Spoon are touring in support of their new album Transference, due out on January 19th via Merge Records (January 18th in Europe on Anti-). The Written In Reverse single came out on January 5th as a 7" single and is also available on iTunes.
You can preview the entire album at NPR.
