Oh summer. 'Tis the season for hot dogs, sunburns, and cramming oneself into a van, rarely showering, and seeing the country from on-stage. Tortoise announced their upcoming summer tour today in support of Beacon of Ancestorship, the band's first full-length album featuring all-new material in over five years. The album, to be released on Thrill Jockey, will hit stores June 23rd, and will be supported by shows throughout the States from now until early Fall. Those dates and venues after the break.
