Electrelane Get in on Arcade Fire Tour Action
UPDATE: St. Vincent too!

Electrelane and the Arcade Fire were supposed to tour together in Europe earlier this year. Unfortunately, Win Butler got "sicker than a brick" and the dates were canceled.

But now all is right with the world, as Electrelane have been chosen to open seven dates on Arcade Fire's forthcoming North American onslaught (plus Sasquatch!, at which both bands appear). These seven dates follow the seven dates featuring opening act the National, as announced earlier today. Lucky number, indeed.

Thanks a bunch to reader Dallan Guzinski for the heads up!

Having been Chosen, Electrelane must, with regrets, cancel on a few of their previously reported dates with the Blow and Tender Forever. Montreal, Detroit, Vancouver, and Portland are out, but as consolation, Electrelane will play several smaller shows amid the Arcade conflagration.

Electrelane's latest, No Shouts, No Calls, is an absolute gem. Pick it up beginning May 8 via Too Pure.

UPDATE: NEW BEGGARS SIGNING ST. VINCENT HAS ALSO BEEN ANNOUNCED AS AN ARCADE FIRE OPENER. ANNIE CLARK WILL HANDLE TWO MONTREAL SHOWS, ONE CHICAGO SHOW, AND VANCOUVER.
