The Features: Additional Tour Dates

Last week we were pretty psyched to learn that The Features were touring in support of their new record Some Kind Of Salvation, but lamenting the fact that there were no headlining dates. Well, today the band announced a bunch of new dates opening for The Whigs across the country.

While it may not be a headlining tour, it will be a chance to see the band in some much smaller venues, and at a significantly cheaper hit to your wallet than the Kings Of Leon shows. Not only that, but the tour itself is far more extensive, and there's a high likelihood that the band's going to wind up somewhere in or around your own town. What's more, if you happen to be in Omaha, the band will be opening for Phoenix for one night. Needless to say, we'd love to be in the house for that one.

While you're waiting for them to arrive, you can check out the live video above. It captures just why we dig the band's live set so much, which is to say: shitloads of energy. We can assure you that this is a show you want to catch.
