COUSINS announce fall tour with The Dodos and summer festival dates! /

June 05, 2013

Last night in Paris, COUSINS wrapped up their triumphant month-long European tour. Their first Eurotrip saw them play fourteen shows in seven countries in the span of three and a half weeks, including two jam-packed shows at The Great Escape festival. You’d think it would be time for a break. But true to COUSINS form, Aaron & Leigh are barely touching home plate before heading out on the road again…their summer Canadian tour starts this Friday!

In June, COUSINS will be playing an amazing festival every weekend, including dates at Obey Convention, NXNE, and Sled Island, followed by a special trip to the Yukon with dates in Whitehorse and Dawson City (presented by Dawson City Music Festival and Frostbite Festival). In September, COUSINS will return to the West to join The Dodos for a cross-Canada/US tour, finishing up at Pop Montreal!

Release-wise, a brand new 12″ split with Construction and Destruction is out July 30th on Noyes Records. The Halls of Wickwire, COUSINS’ new full-length recorded over the fall/winter with Josh Korody (Candle Recording) and produced by Graham Walsh of Holy Fuck (METZ, Hannah Georgas), is complete; release details will be announced in the coming weeks. The first video from that album for “What’s Your Name?” is on VIMEO.
