Canadian indie rockers controller.controller are heading out on a cross country trek behind their debut album X-Amounts.
If that all sounds familiar, it's probably because the Toronto band already did a rather extensive cross country tour at the end of 2005 after the released of their album in October. But the band is likely out again to promote the release of the album in the US of A.
In spite of the fact that we have been enjoying X-Amounts here in the great white north for a couple of months the album won't be released in the States until March 7.
Luckily we'll be able to take advantage of some of their live shows as they continue to tour behind the album.
The band has already begun the tour in the Eastern United States and will be heading into Canada for their first date on January 30 in Moncton. They'll finish their Canadian trek way on the other side of the country in Nanaimo, BC, in March and do a few dates in the American West before wrapping up the tour in Tucson, Arizona, on March 14.
Up until February 9 the band will be touring with Chicago rockers OK Go.
Conspicuously missing from the schedule is a date in the band's home town of Toronto, they had one scheduled for February 10, at Lee's Palace, but according to their website they will no longer be playing there and they are still working on a replacement date.
