Scott Lucas & the Married Men @ Pritzker Pavilion, May 2012 (more by Zach Pollack)

Like many other acts, Chicago's Scott Lucas & the Married Men are gearing up for a spring U.S. tour which includes appearances at South by Southwest in Austin, TX. Before heading down to Austin for the festival, they'll join a heap of Chicago bands at the Hideout on March 9 for the venue's annual SXSW send-off party. Advance tickets aren't being sold for this one, but you'll be able to purchase them at the door. In April, Lucas and co. will be supporting Sam Fogarino of Interpol's EmptyMansions project on tour. That tour is in support of their debut LP snakes/vultures/sulfate (out 4/2 via Riot House), and now includes a performance at the Empty Bottle on May 1. Ticketing information for the Chicago show is forthcoming, but check Ticketweb for updates.

We're also proud to premiere the Married Men's new video for "Steady Gaze" from their 2012 sophomore album Blood Half Moon. The clip, which was directed and edited by Scott Lucas himself, features tour footage from their frequent stints on the road in support of the LP. "Shooting inside a van hurtling down the highway at 70 miles per hour might not have been the safest thing - but I like it. We look like the Muppets," said Lucas.
