[News] Austra Announces Remix Album Physical Release Date, Fall Tour Dates

A few weeks ago, Canadian electronic outfit Austra digitally released Sparkles, an album consisting of remixes from their debut album Feel It Break. While it is currently available digitally, there has been no word of when it would be released on CD and vinyl, and now we know, as the band has announced that Sparkles will be released physically on August 23rd via Domino.

The group has also announced a hefty amount of tour dates that will be filling up the rest of their year, including one night performances alongside Arcade Fire and James Blake on August 29th and October 6th, respectively.
