Pere Ubu announce string of European dates, because America just wouldn't get it

In case you didn’t hear the news, legendary Cleveland band Pere Ubu have a new album called Carnival of Souls coming out on September 8 via Fire Records. They’ve already put out videos for two new tracks, “Road to Utah” and “Irene.” And now they’ve got a tour all set up for November. Great news right? Can’t wait to get out there and see The Ub (that’s my cool nickname for them, The Ub, I’m sure Dave Thomas would love it)?

Well not so fast there, because unless you’re in Europe you’re shit out of luck. They’ll be in France, they’ll be in Britain, they’ll be in Scotland, they’ll be in Spain, but they won’t be in your little backwater Podunk, no sir. Let’s face facts though, if you’re not in Europe you probably don’t really have the capacity to appreciate what The Ub are going for. You think you do, but you don’t. And you might say, “Fine, I don’t know if I ‘get it’ or whatever, but I enjoy the music and shouldn’t that be enough?” But that’s okay, we all ask stupid questions sometimes. We just have to face facts that us non-Europeans can’t fully grasp the subtle, refined art of The Ub.
