Taking a bunch of much-talked about indie acts and putting them together for a tour has become an increasing trend of late (see: No Age + Deerhunter + Dan Deacon, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart + Cymbals Eat Guitars, Andrew Bird + St. Vincent). So, it comes as little surprise to hear that for three weeks later this year, FatCat Records labelmates Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, and We Were Promised Jetpacks will be teaming up for a North American tour.
The fun, which officially gets underway on September 13th at the Monolith Festival, will come right before The Twilight Sad unveil its latest studio effort, Forge The Night Ahead, on September 22nd and shortly after We Were Promised Jet Packs release their own new album, These Four Walls — which just so happens to be occuring today. As for Frightened Rabbit? They’ll still be supporting the uber awesome The MIdnight Organ Fight.
