[News] The Drums Announce North American Tour

With the release of The Drums' second studio album Portamento set for September 12th in the UK and the 13th in North America, the announcement of a supporting tour was inevitable. Today, the band announced just that, with plans for a North American tour immediately following their return from a European festival circuit. Starting on September 28th and ending on November 6th, the tour will take the New Yorkers all across North America, including major stops such as Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Austin, and Miami.
