Built To Spill plots summer full of touring

Advertisement

    I’m happy for America today. I’m happy because Built To Spill is coming back to the states for a confirmed summer tour. I’m happy because now America has a plethora of opportunities to see them live, which, if you haven’t seen Doug Martsch coax a solo from his six-string, my friend, you’re gonna be happy once you do.

    Built to Spill’s marathon fall 2009 tour supporting its latest LP There Is No Enemy was extensive and had the band mostly sticking to music clubs. This particular endeavor is just as vast, but will see BTS hitting larger open-air venues, pavilions, and amphitheaters alongside those traditional club performances. Of course, we have Kings of Leon to thank for outdoor arenas, as BTS will be crisscrossing paths with those boys on their tour all summer.

    In addition to its opening stint for KoL, Built to Spill will also headline a series of shows throughout North America this summer, as well as make appearances at both the Sled Island Music Festival and LouFest. So, you know if you don’t like Kings of Leon, you’re still good. You can find the healthy list of upcoming tour dates below.
