Akron/Family announce tour we can understand, for the album that we can't

Too immersed in your work? Haven’t called home in a while? Shameful, isn’t it? Akron/Family feel the same way. They won’t be with you for Christmas (they’ve got their own loved ones), but come February, it’s time for a good ol’ fashioned family road trip. They’ve got Game Boys, road maps, and snacks all set up for the tour, plus their fourth full-length, S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT, out February 8 on Dead Oceans (read about its inception here — it’s worth it).

More info is out since we last reported on the forthcoming album, including the tracklisting. It’ll be a two-LP deal on vinyl or regular CD for you digital saps. You have two months now to start figuring out what in hell Shinju TNT means, so start… now!
