Madison, Wisconsin-born indie veterans Rainer Maria will embark on a spring tour in support of their fifth studio album on April 20 in DC. The tour, as it stands now, will swing down South and then up through the West Coast, wrapping up on May 6 in Seattle (though more dates will be added).
The new album, Catastrophe Keeps Us Together, is the band's first non-Polyvinyl release and will hit stores on April 4. Their publicist sent me some streams to a couple of album tracks, so if you're craving a little Rainer Maria love, check them out below.
