New York, NY. (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - "Disturbingly gifted new talent" (Pitchfork) St. Vincent
has confirmed an extensive U.S. tour in support of her anticipated new album 'Actor' due out May 5 on 4AD. The tour kicks off May 19 at the Somerville Theatre in Somerville, MA, and includes the largest venues St. Vincent
has ever headlined, plus festival performances at Sasquatch! and Bonnaroo. See below for a full itinerary.
St. Vincent (nee Annie Clark) will preview songs from 'Actor' next week with two performances at SXSW: 11pm on Wednesday, March 18, at the 4AD showcase at Central Presbyterian Church; and 12 midnight on Friday, March 20, at the Billions showcase at Antone's. The Austin American Statesman calls 'Actor' "a mindblower" and predicts that St. Vincent "could be the hottest ticket at SXSW this year."
'Actor' is available for pre-order now. Early CD and LP orders come with a free limited edition 7" featuring the album track "Actor Out of Work," and the exclusive, non-album track "Bicycle" on the flipside. Go here for more info: http://www.beggarsgroupusa.com/releases/actor/
