SPOON ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR


Spoon has announced a late summer North American headlining tour in support of their forthcoming eighth studio album, They Want My Soul. Along with a handful of festival dates, the band will be headlining throughout the Midwest and Eastern seaboard.

These dates follow Spoon’s triumphant return at festivals including Governors Ball — a performance ROLLING STONE hailed as the fest’s “Best Introduction of New Material” and raved “Spoon figured out how to please everyone… as if they were wrapping a bow around the whole set.”

A listing of confirmed dates and support can be found below. All dates are on sale Friday, June 27 at 10am local time with the exception of festival dates and the band’s August 30 Montreal show as special guests of Arcade Fire.

Visit http://www.spoontheband.com/shows/ for further details.

Spoon will release their new album, They Want My Soul, on August 5 via Loma Vista Recordings. Lead track “Rent I Pay” was premiered live from NYC on June 6 (http://n.pr/1qh22I1) and subsequently released as an unofficial video which can be seen here. Preorders for They Want My Soul are now live at iTunes, Amazon and http://www.spoontheband.com/. All preorders come with an instant download of “Rent I Pay”. A stunning exclusive pre-order bundle is also available via Spoon’s website. In this bundle, fans will find a limited edition vinyl LP, T-shirt, beach ball, postcards and handwritten lyric sheets. The first 100 bundle preorders will receive autographed lyric sheets.
