American Analog Set Prepare To Launch Farewell Tour

Published: 2005-10-18
Indie pop kings (and queen) American Analog Set have announced that their upcoming North American tour will also be their last. The Texan-based band, whose sixth album, Set Free, came out earlier this year courtesy of the good people at Toronto's Arts and Crafts label (home to Stars, Broken Social Scene et. al.), revealed the news after returning from a recent tour of Japan.

"We're still friends and we still like making music together but we've all got other projects that we'd like to concentrate on for a while," frontman Andrew Kenny told the Pitchfork website recently.

The band, who signed a record deal after their second-ever show, became well-loved in indie circles for their ambient, dreamy pop sounds, first heard on their 1996 Emperor Norton debut The Fun Of Watching Fireworks.

Three Canadian dates are on the schedule for the AAS' farewell tour; drop by and tip your proverbial cap (or your real cap) to the band at the following dates:

October 26, Vancouver, BC - Media Club
November 13, Toronto, ON - Horseshoe Tavern
November 14, Montreal, QC - Petit Campus
