Built To Spill Announce US Tour

  |   Comments

Built To Spill have announced plans for a summer/fall US tour kicking off in Oklahoma City this month and ending in Salt Lake City in November.

A former co-worker of mine turned me on to the magic of BTS and the mighty Doug Martsch, a guitar god of a different breed, and his band's distinct brand of indie rock. I wish I could tell you this tour is in support of a brand new album but that doesn't appear to be the case. The good news is fans of the their catalog can expect to hear a bevy of favorites with no new album to promote but those of us wanting to hear new music are just going to have to wait a little longer.

BTS has also lined up several support acts to accompany them at their various stops around the country: Slam Dunk, Genders, Warm Hair, Lenguas Largas, Crosss, and Parasol among them.
