Token Brit Band Tours

By shane

Summer Tour Preview: Part Two. As usual, the big package tours going across the U.S. this summer offer little to those with brit-indie sensibilities. Nevertheless, a few of the tours have added at least one British band to add a smidgen of credibility to their rosters. Symposium will be playing a number of dates on the Warped tour and will also be playing some smaller venues while they are stateside. Similarly, Catatonia will be playing some dates on the HORDE tour as well as doing some headlining while they are in the U.S. With the strong buzz around the "Mulder and Scully" single and the "International Velvet" album, Catatonia could be one of the breakthrough bands in the U.S. this year. Finally, Drugstore will be playing some acoustic sets on the Lilith tour this summer and are still lining up a full-scale tour to support their new album stateside.
