Capital/EMI will release a greatest-hits style collection for the Dandy Warhols on August 24th. Titled The Capitol Years 1995-2007, it's the Portland, Oregon group's first best-of compilation in the Dandy Warhols’ career. After recording a rich discography, the band are not only looking back on their career but also adding a new song to the collection. AND they're hitting the road.

The Dandy Warhols tour will weave through many venues in Europe, including several festivals. Switzerland’s Blue Balls Festival, France’s Rock Festival and Secretes Festival, and Portugal’s Coura Festival should be highlights.  In the Fall they'll tour locations in North America. Later on the band may add other performances, so it’s worth it to keep posted.

It's a triumphant moment for a band that has worked well with the power of the single as a medium, and whether or not you like the Dandies, it’s hard to say the songs on The Capitol Years aren’t catchy. “Bohemian Like You” and “Get Off” both carried the Warhol’s career into more lucrative directions.
