Dirty Projectors Announce 2012 Tour

As we mentioned last week, the Dirty Projectors have a new album, Swing Lo Magellan, coming out on July 10th. The Brooklyn band has now announced an extensive tour schedule in support of their new release. The tour will begin in Canada in the beginning of July, and will then span the US for the rest of the summer, ending in mid-August. The openers for the tour are Baltimore indie-folk duo Wye Oak, and our previous Sasquatch! artist of the week, Purity Ring. If you missed Dirty Projectors’ new single, “Gun Has No Trigger,” stream it here, and find the band’s summer tour dates after the jump.
