Ted Leo | Pharmacists Kick Off Never Ending Tour This Week

Veteran indie stalwart Ted Leo and his band of prescription-filling merrymakers will kick off a two-month stretch of live dates on Thursday (10.14 as part of Lookout! CMJ Showcase) in support of their new album. Dubbed Shake The Sheets, the album, which is the band's third Lookout! release and fifth overall, will hit the streets next week. The incredibly long tour will run through December 11 in New York, NY, and will find Leo joining forces with a number of exciting acts along the way. Engine Down, Mary Timony, Just A Fire, The Lashes, El Guapo, Q And Not U, Lucero, The Reputation, The Tossers, The Natural History, Matt Pond PA, and Vague Angels will all share the stage with Leo and company before the tour's mid-December wrap-up.

The first single from Shake The Sheets, "Me And Mia", is arriving at commercial specialty outlets this week, so radio guys, expect to see it popping up on your radar in the very near future. On to the dates...
