The Pains of Being Pure at Heart tour every country on earth, as long as the country is cute

Indie pop darlings The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are feeling fresh from the success of their sophomore album Belong (TMT Review), which was released at the end of March to critical acclaim. Now, to rep said album, the New York-based band is packing its bags, getting makeovers, and going on an all-expenses-paid trip to sunny Europe! And Turkey! And Japan! Plus Canada and the USA! So… why am I not in this band, tagging along on what’s sure to be THE MUSICAL ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME??? Seriously. There are five people in this band. Who’d notice one more?

In a heartwarming twist, this 2009 buzz band is taking current buzz band Craft Spells with them on the North American portion of the tour to serve as an opening act/confidant/person to take the photograph in front of that giant space needle-lookin’ thing in Toronto. Craft Spells recently released their debut album Idle Labor on Captured Tracks.
