Stellastarr* Confirm Fall Tour With The Raveonettes, Album Release

New York quartet Stellastarr* will release their self-titled debut album on September 23 via RCA. Prior to their big day, the band will head over to the UK for a short, six-date tour that includes stops at the Reading and Leeds festivals. They'll then head back to North America to kick off a tour with The Raveonettes in Philly on September 5. The two bands will be together through October 12 as they crisscross the US and Canada on the 29-date tour. I've yet to see this band live, but I have spent a great deal of time with an advance of Stellastarr*, and if you like Interpol, Joy Division, Elefant, etc., you'll dig these guys.

Stellastarr*'s first commercial release came last year in the form of the Somewhere Across Forever EP. The three-song offering was released via the small NYC indie, Tiswas Records to great critical acclaim. Look below for the band's full tour itinerary.
