[News] Bright Eyes Extend Tour Dates

Bright Eyes released their critically acclaimed seventh album The People’s Key, via Saddle Creek, in February. Since then, the band have been on a whirlwind tour, traversing North America and crossing the pond to play sold out shows and festivals on what has been a real greatest hits tour for the Omaha troubadours. Bright Eyes are now pleased to announce additional tour dates with newly confirmed support from Dr. Dog and First Aid Kit, who are each set to join the band on select dates, which you can check out after the jump.

As well, you can check out the Lance Acord directed video for single “Jejune Stars” in the player above.
