Mates Of State Support Their Constant Concerns, Again

Polyvinylís own boy-girl duo, Mates of State, comprised of the husband and wife team of Jason and Kori Gardner Hammel, will make their way across North America for their second tour in support of Our Constant Concern. The album, which was released in January of 2002, is a fun, quirky, '80s toy keyboard-based alternative to Detroitís White Stripes. Beginning on May 23, with the only non-US show in Vancouver, BC, the tour will make pit stops in 28 cities across the continental US, tapping clubs and other small venues along the way. Mirah will be on board for four shows at the beginning of the tour.
