Les Savy Fav To Rip Across the US

Rhode Islandís favorite art-punks, Les Savy Fav, have no time to rest after completing their European tour, as the group prepares for a massive U.S. jaunt. The Fav have recently announced several more US dates, bringing the total number of stops up to 32. The tour kicks off on the 1st of November in New York City with a benefit show at the Bowery Ballroom where theyíll be accompanied by !!! (pronounced "chik, chik, chik") and the Apes. The gig will be dedicated to punk rock firefighter John Heffernen, a guitarist for the NY punk band the Bullys who lost his life in the September 11th attacks on the world trade center. All proceeds from the show will be donated, in Hefís name, to the Lower East Side fire house where he volunteered.

Following the benefit, Les Savy Fav will tour like madmen until December 8th. Along the way, the Fav will tour with !!! and the Apes, as well as some east coast shows with Modest Mouse frontman Issac Brock (under the guise of Ugly Casanova) and At the Drive-In side project Defacto. Les Savy Favís third full-length, Go Forth was released on Tuesday.
