Built To Spill Announce Fall 2013 Tour

Bundled up and ready to tackle the upper Midwest, starting now.
And there's an Iowa date!

I've been spinning Live and Perfect From Now On recently and, if you didn't know this already, both are holding up remarkably well.

I'm getting stoked at the notion that they're going to try and cram all of that gear into the Iowa City venue they've chosen. Should be fun.

Jim Roth-the dude in the hat-is best know around these parts to anyone over the age of 35 as a one-time Hollowmen bud and the head honcho of the most awesome Voodoo Gearshift.

These guys are friggin road dogs-check out the one-a-days below. They haven't had a new record out in 4 years, so maybe there's lots of new material on this run.


Built To Spill, one of the most endearing and enduring bands of our generation, have announced a string of fall headlining tour dates; select dates will go on sale July 27th. In addition to touring the U.S., the band is currently writing songs for their next Warner Bros. Records release.

Vocalist/guitarist Doug Martsch, guitarists Brett Netson and Jim Roth, drummer Steve Gere and bassist Jason Albertini have been on the road all year touring throughout North America. They also performed at the Sub Pop Silver Jubilee show in Seattle and will perform at the Rock for Oklahoma City benefit concert on July 23rd. Built to Spill released its most recent album There Is No Enemy in October 2009. It was the band's first album since 2006'sYou In Reverse. Previous studio albums include 2001's Ancient Melodies of the Future, 1999's Keep It Like A Secret, and their major-label debut, 1997's Perfect From Now On. In 2013 Built to Spill remain an influential force in compositionally intelligent, lyrically thoughtful, melodic, guitar-centric rock music.
