The Twilight Sad Heads Out For North American Tour

Well, we couldn't be happier about this one: turns out The Twilight Sad's date with Frightened Rabbit in SF this week is just one of many on a tour of the US. While, sadly, Frightened Rabbit won't be joining them for the whole thing, the band has lined up a thorough tour of the US (and all over the world) in support of their new record Forget The Night Ahead.

The band's last record was one of our faves of 2007, and we're expecting no less from this release. What's more, we've never had the chance to catch them live, and are champing at the bit to do so. The band's waves of noisy guitars and anthemic vocals beg to be heard live, and frankly, we can't wait.

The record doesn't drop until October 5th, but meanwhile you can satisfy yourself by catching the band live as they tour the continent over the course of September.
