As announced, Nada Surf are set to release their new album The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy on January 24th via Barsuk Records. They’ll play a NYC record release show that very night, and two other gigs close in date to the show. A full 2012 tour will kick off towards the end of March, and reaches Chicago’s Metro on April 2nd. Fan pre-sale starts tomorrow (11/9), at 10AM CST. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Saturday (11/12), at noon CST.

Just a few days after Nada Surf play the venue (on Thursday, 4/5), Wild Flag will take the stage! This will mark their fifth show in Chicago (Subterranean, Wicker Park Fest, two nights at Empty Bottle), and is a large step up in size from the venues they have been playing throughout the country. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, at noon CST.
