Lee Ranaldo @ the Vic, May 2012 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
5

Lee Ranaldo has announced that he'll be releasing a new solo LP in October via Matador Records. It'll be a double album, and follows the full-band approach of 2012's Between the Times and the Tides. He's also given his backing band a name -- the Dust -- but it still includes all the usual suspects (Alan Licht, Steve Shelly, and Tim Luntzel).

Ranaldo and the Dust will be embarking on a North American tour in October. That tour includes a performance at the Empty Bottle on October 13. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (7/26) at 10AM CST.

All Lee Ranaldo and the Dust dates are below...
