of Montreal coming to YOUR city to say "thanks!"

Hey, all you music fans! of Montreal is going back on tour to entertain you with their top-of-the-line stage show, life-like props, unexpected covers, and totally danceable music! The band has announced a four-week North American tour that kicks off in our nation’s capital and will see the band visit the individual homes of every US citizen who bought the band’s latest release on Polyvinyl, False Priest (TMT Review), so that lead-singer Kevin Barnes and co. can offer up individual thanks to each fan.

The tour, which unfortunately can’t visit each and every fan personally, will be stopping in over 20 American cities so that all the loyal of Montreal devotees can watch the band they helped turn into one of last year’s critical favorites. “We’ll have some new props and things, but those ones are secret. Maybe I’ll come out and do a Muddy Waters cover or something,” Barnes told Spin magazine, before elaborating that fans can expect old tunes (such as those featured on the recent Ambivalent Stumbling Hysterical Dispatches retrospective digital box set), new tunes (such as those to be featured on a new EP the band is working on), and cleverly-picked cover songs on the new tour.
