Indie supergroup the New Pornographers have announced US tour dates in support of their upcoming Matador Records full length Challengers. The band will depart from their Canadian home base in British Columbia in mid September and travel down and up the US west coast.
The 12 song full length features 9 tracks penned by Carl "A.C." Newman and three by Destroyer's Dan Bejar. Newman, Bejar, Neko Case and Immaculate Machine's Kathryn Calder all provide vocals. Label Matador Records recently announced a limited edition digital "box set" to accompany the record, a deluxe preorder edition available through their Buy Early Get Now program that will feature three discs worth of b-sides, live material and other media.
