In 2010 when Maps & Atlases released their stunning debut album, Perch Patchwork, we couldn't get enough. Some good news this way does come today as the Chicago band have announced their sophomore effort entitled, Beware and Be Careful, and a release date for April 16th in the UK and a day later on the 17th in the US. They've also uploaded an intriguing little video for the announcement which right at the end features some new music being played at what looks like a school disco!?
The band have also announced a European and UK tour. Dates after the jump. See you at Night & Day!
