The Constantines Plan World Tour For 'Tournament Of Hearts'

Published: 2005-10-13
Three Gut Records could surely have picked no better album for its swan song than Tournament Of Hearts, the third album from Toronto's beloved Constantines. And, though Three Gut issued its final vinyl a couple of weeks ago, the record makes its American debut this week, courtesy of the good people at Sub Pop.

Timed nicely with its US and rest-of-world release is news of an upcoming Constantines tour that will encompass Canada, the US and most of Northern Europe (including Austria!). The tour will begin October 12 in Edmonton and continue with nary a break until the fab five wearily wrap things up in Belgium on December 10. Joining the boys for most of the North American leg of the tour will be The Hold Steady and, on some dates, the intriguingly named Thunderbirds Are Now!

In other Cons news, the boys will be releasing a split 12" EP with The Unintended featuring The Constantines covering Neil Young songs with Rick White, Greg Keelor and the Sadies boys tackling the works of Gordon Lightfoot.

Canadian dates for the Tournament Of Hearts tour are as follows:

October 12, Edmonton, AB - Power Plant
October 14, Vancouver, BC - Richard's On Richards (w/The Hold Steady)
November 2, Toronto, ON - Opera House (w/The Hold Steady, Thunderbirds Are Now!)
November 3, Montreal, QC - La Sala Rossa (w/The Hold Steady, Thunderbirds Are Now!)
