Shellac Announce Actual Tour
Running contrary to their usual modus operandi of playing a precious few scattered dates a year, Shellac will kick off their second full-blown tour in less than a year on May 16. The almost one-month long tour of Europe includes their appearance at ATP vs the Fans on May 19.
To gear up for the shows in Europe, the band will play two April shows in their hometown of Chicago. One is a benefit for Cal Robbins at the Subterranean, and the other is at the Congress Theater with Steve Albini's new buddies, the Stooges.
There is still no new word on Shellac's next record other than that it exists. Maybe.
