The Constantines have a few December dates lined up in Ontario. On the 17th they'll play the Edge Electric Xmas in Toronto at the Kool Haus with Alexisonfire, The Planet Smashers and others. The following day they'll be in Guelph playing a benefit for the Canadian Cancer Society at Cafe Aquarius.

In January the band will head back down over the border for a set of US shows with Oakley Hall. Following that they'll head into the studio to record the follow up to 2003's Shine A Light. The band is currently supporting the second single from that record; Young Lions was released on Sub Pop earlier this fall with the b-sides "Sea Line Woman" and Royal City cover "Raw Youth."
