R.E.M. is set to release a new album called Accelerate on April 1. I've got the radio on at work and they just played a bit of the first single which sounded excellent! To promote the album they will be touring with The National and Modest Mouse as support. Nice.

Here are the tour date so far, copied from their web site.


23--Vancouver--Deer Lake Park
29--Los Angeles--Hollywood Bowl
31--Berkeley--The Greek Theatre


03--Denver--Red Rocks Amphitheatre
06--Chicago--United Center
08--Toronto--Molson Amphitheatre
10--Raleigh--Walnut Creek Amphitheatre
11--Washington, DC--Merriweather Post Pavilion
13--Boston--Tweeter Center for the Performing Arts
14--Long Island--Jones Beach Theater
18--Philadelphia--Mann Center for the Performing Arts
19--New York City--TBA
21--Atlanta--Lakewood Amphitheatre

Each time they've played here the show has sold out in minutes and I've yet to be able to catch them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this time round.

Looks like we'll be seeing them 2 nights apart, Autumn. Cool.

Their new album is supposed to be rockier than the last one. I'm looking forward to it.

The part of the single that I heard definately rocked.

...going to be there, along with Modest Mouse. Those two bands interest me more than R.E.M. at this point. Show is in MD on June 11th, so I'll be checking with some friends to see if they want to go. Of course, this will probably sell out so fast we won't have a chance to get tickets, but you never know.
