Speaking about the tour, the duo said: “We’re very excited to be playing again, to get a chance to do new things with old stuff, or old things with new people.

“We’re very happy to have Fred opening the shows. We’ll be six on stage, joined by Brian Betancourt, Noah Hecht, Emily Lee, and Cameron Wisch.”

Tickets for the gigs go on sale this Friday here.

The duo also shared mournful song, ‘The Fortune Teller’s Revenge’ yesterday (August 26), a previous B-side which has now been released as a standalone single.

The song was released on physical copies of the band’s 2020 project, ‘Down at the So and So on Somewhere.’
