We never learn apparently. Big U.S. tour in July! What's special this time is that for the entire journey we'll be joined by the unreal Sam Mickens, performing his brand new solo music. Sam is the longtime frontman of the Dead Science, the Sam Mickens Ecstatic Showband & Revue, and he also plays in Xiu Xiu. Also, on the west coast we'll be joined by our good friends Parenthetical Girls. Those dates are marked with an * .

Speaking of Parenthetical Girls, we'll have for sale the limited edition P Girls / Extra Life 12" split single. No cover art just straight wax. It includes P Girls' cover of "Head Shrinker" and EL's cover of "I Was the Dancer". It's a split release between Slender Means Society and Last Things.

As for kickstarter prizes: I just have to bind the scores and make the mixes and I can get them out this week!
