The Frames Confirm North American Tour

Published: 2005-01-28
As previously reported on Soul Shine, Irish favourites The Frames are crossing the big puddle of water known as the Atlantic to promote their newest full-length called 'Burn The Maps'. The 12-track record was released last fall in the UK (currently available on import in Canada), and will finally receive worldwide release on February 8th.

While earlier the quartet was just speculating which North American cities they'd be visiting, they've now confirmed their tour. The jaunt is set to kick off on February 26th in Philadelphia, and will continue on for 14 performances until The Frames land in Austin, Texas to perform at the famed SXSW Festival. Canadian soil will be touched upon three times; once each in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Following the wrap of the American leg, The Frames will head Down Under for 5 gigs in Australia.

The opener for all dates on The Frames' North American tour is a man that goes by the name of Mark Geary. Geary hails from the Emerald Isle just like his tour mates, and is touring behind his new album 'Ghosts', which was just release on January 25th on this continent.

Renowned for their intimate live performances, The Frames have had massive success in their homeland. While they haven't reached that height in Canada yet, it can't be much longer. To check out what The Frames have to offer go to their official site at: www.theframes.ie.

The Frames' upcoming performances:

March 3 Montreal, QC - La Tulipe
March 4 Toronto, ON - The Opera House
March 10 Vancouver, BC - Richard's On Richards (TBC)
