The last time we saw this inventive live band, I mentioned that of Montreal will be releasing Aureate Gloom (Polyvinyl Records). Now that it's getting a little closer to its release date (March 3, 2015), I'm happy to unveil their cover artwork, as well talk about their upcoming tour in support of the new album. of Montreal was one of my favorite live bands, so you definitely need to see them if you have not experienced them live.
The Aureate Gloom tour will take the Athens-based band from the southeast to SXSW in Austin, and then westward bound.... and then back again to Austin in April!

UK's Gang of Four will be heading to the US in support of their latest album What Happens Next, set for release on February 24, 2015, via Metropolis Records in the USA and Canada, and Membran in Europe. It should be noted that the upcoming album is a first without vocalist Jon King... so the title (What Happens Next?) is fitting. John Sterry (credited as Gaoler on the liner notes) will take over the vocals, and he's heard singing with Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Robbie Furze from The Big Pink, Gail Ann Dorsey, German superstar Herbert Grönemeyer and Japanese superstar Hotei.

NOTE: I am told they will be playing two SXSW dates, which will be announced when it is finalized.
Not to be confused with Canadian band Wand or Denmark's The Wands or Japanese rock band Wands or Wooden Wand (aka Wand), this the Los Angeles-based band Wand. We've previously mentioned them briefly when they toured with Ty Segall last year (2014).
Wand is back, this time touring through and around SXSW 2015, in support of their upcoming 2015 album Golem (available March 17th, 2015 on In the Red Records).
