Built to Tour
With a new album, There Is No Enemy, scheduled to hit the streets Tuesday, Oct. 6, Built to Spill hits the road on a months-long headlining tour around the album's release. On Thursday, Aug. 20, they'll join label mates The Flaming Lips for a show in Oregon before heading to points east and then swinging back around to the West Coast in late November. They'll preview tracks from the album along the way.
There Is No Enemy is the band's first release since 2006's You In Reverse and hopefully they'll play a few songs from There Is No Enemy during their stop in Boise at the Hyde Park Street Fair on Friday, Sept. 18.
Speaking of Lips
The Flaming Lips (who also have a new album coming out) and All Tomorrow's Parties are co-curating this year's All Tomorrow's Parties festival on Sept. 11-13 in Monticello, NY.
Scheduled acts include The Jesus Lizard, Iron and Wine, Animal Collective, Sufjan Stevens, Melvins, Menomena and more. Word is that Stevens is also releasing a new album titled Run Rabbit Run, a rearrangement of 2001's Enjoy Your Rabbit. Other highlights include comedy from David Cross and Sunday's performances are exclusive to the ATP event.
