The Format and Steel Train have embarked on a nearly two-month-long U.S. / somewhat Canadian tour.

The former will be supporting 2006's Dog Problems (Elektra), which they recently decided to give away. The latter is finishing work on their sophomore LP, which is set for an October release; it'll follow up 2005's Twilight Tales from the Prairies of the Sun (Drive-Thru).
