Hard Festival turns into Hard Summer Tour with Crystal Castles; day-glo clothing sales rise

If you wear lots of day-glo and tend to strike poses like this one, then you’re probably psyched that Hard Festival is turning from a weekend festival into a 12-date tour. With a line-up consisting of Crystal Castles, Rusko, Sinden, and Destructo, the tour will kick off on August 6 in Oakland, CA and end on August 22 in Baltimore, MD. Tickets are now on sale for all dates, and can be purchased by visiting the festival’s website. In addition to the surrounding tour, the Hard Festival is still set to take place in Los Angeles on August 7.

Meanwhile, Crystal Castles’ second album is due May 24 on Fiction in Europe (North American date forthcoming). It’s self-titled, like their first. Who do they think they are? Weezer?
