Of Montreal Headed to Montreal

Published: 2006-01-09
Just because a band is named Of Montreal doesn't mean that the band is necessarily, well...of Montreal at all.

Actually, Of Montreal is from Athens, Georgia. The group got its name from one band member's failed romance with a lady from the French-Canadian city.

The experimental pop group will be touring North America from January till March, with a couple of Canadian dates thrown in for good measure.

The band isn't going to let being on the road make them slack off on their recording. Of Montreal is also currently working on demos for its upcoming album, which according to Pitchfork.com is tentatively titled Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?

But if you just can't wait for a new record from the band, you can pick up a limited edition EP from one of its shows. It features a few brand new tunes, including "Psychotic Feeling" and "More Noir Blues and Tinnitus."

The band will only be making a couple of stops in Canada, naturally including one in its namesake city:

March 7, Montreal, QC - Le Tulipe
March 8, Toronto, ON - Mod Club
