Doves Plan Spring Tour: Fillmore In May, Presale Next Week

We've already made mention of the new Doves record Kingdom Of Rust that's set to drop on April 7th. Well, now things are really starting to heat up: We've been listening to the record (and digging it quite a bit), and the band has released the inaugural video (see above).

On top of that, news has just dropped that the band will be making their first US tour in almost 4 years in support of the record. Over May and June they'll cover both coasts, with one or two stops in the midwest for good measure. There's also apparently a presale at Astralwerks starting March 11th, with the password "Jetstream". While we can't exactly discern where one would go to for that presale, we'll keep you in the know once we figure it out.

Presale or regular sale, we can assure you that this is one band you won't want to miss. Their live show is unequivocally solid, and the rarity of their appearances on this side of the pond makes it all that much more special. For you Bay Area folk, that means an appearance at the Fillmore on May 18th. For everyone else, read on....

I had never heard of doves when I first read the news on a kabajillion blogs, so I listened to a handful of their songs and still don't understand what the big deal is...

but maybe that's because my lack of 21 years on this planet deems me musically retarded. who knows.
