Although we have every right to still be ticked off at Jason Pierce for announcing Spiritualized’s new album before it was even complete, inevitably ending up in the release date getting pushed back from what we were promised, I’m sure we’ll all forgive him in light of the fact that he will be taking his live power house on tour of North America in May.

The dates all take place in May and hit all the main North American markets. They stop just short of the end of the month in Vancouver, which makes me think they’ll probably also get added to Washington’s Sasquatch Festival to go on the end of this string, but we’ll have to wait and see. (Admittedly, they have to get back over to Barcelona to play Primavera Sound that same weekend, but it’s not impossible; Deerhunter and The Flaming Lips played both last year.) Dates are below.
