Apples In Stereo Open For The Strokes

Poptastic indie veterans Apples In Stereo have been tapped to open five dates for The Strokes later this month. To do so, Apples will be taking a few days off from work on their fifth studio LP, New Magnetic Wonder, which is expected to be finished up next month. Having completed a ten-year run with spinART, a spokesperson for the band says that Apples are "finalizing a deal with a well-known independent label to release the album, which is slated for early 2007." Once things are finalized, we'll let ya know who this mysterious well-known indie is.

Here's those strokes dates:

05.20.06 - Richmond, VA (Innsbrook Pavillion)
05.22.06 - Memphis, TN (Orpheum Theater)
05.23.06 - Birmingham, AL (Sloss Furnace)
05.25.06 - Charleston, SC (Center Stage At The Plex)
05.26.06 - Asheville, NC (Thomas Wolfe Auditorium)
