Akron/Family Play Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver on Upcoming North American Tour

Akron/Family Play Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver on Upcoming North American Tour
As previously reported, ambitious psych rockers Akron/Family will be returning with a new album on Dead Oceans early next year. The album's full title is S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT, and that alone suggests it will be their freakiest effort to date.

S/T II will be released on February 8, and we've now learned that it will be followed by a massive North American tour that will take the band from Brooklyn to Oakland in the span of nearly two months. Along the way, they will make three Canadian stops: Montreal on February 19, Toronto on February 20 and Vancouver on March 25.

All dates are available below. We still don't have any tracks to post from the album, but the samples in the video below are still enough to demonstrate the level of bizarreness we're dealing with here.
