Andrew Bird to release ‘Break It Yourself,’ finishing a 2012 tour @ the Auditorium Theatre (dates)
Andrew Bird @ Tarrytown Music Hall (NY) in October (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Andrew Bird has just announced the release of his new album Break It Yourself, out March 6th in the US (5th internationally) via Mom + Pop Records. Produced and recorded entirely by Bird himself at his Western Illinois barn-turned-home-studio, the LP will serve as the highly anticipated follow up to 2009's Noble Beast.
Shortly after its release, he'll embark on a 3-month North American tour, which comes to a close at our own Auditorium Theatre on May 12th. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (12/10), at 10AM CST. Stay tuned for pre-sale information. If you're a member of Andrew's fan club, you can purchase tickets now.
All tickets (both pre-sale and general sale) come with a digital copy of Break It Yourself (link active at midnight on March 6th), a five-song live EP dubbed Fake Conversations from his October 2011 tour (inboxed to you within a few days), and the promise of a forthcoming live EP from this tour (delivered in the spring on 2012). Not a bad deal, huh?
Eugene Mirman, Laura Marling, Patrick Watson, Tift Merritt, and Mucca Pazza (who play the Chicago show) will serve as 2012 support.
Andrew Bird and Ian Schneller's Sonic Arboretum opens today at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
