Suuns take over Europe, announce short but sweet US tour

Suuns take over Europe, announce short but sweet US tour

Ahh the romance of the open road! The midnight truck stop dinners, the socks washed in motel room sinks, the bleary, drunk pleas after a show for a floor in a nice, non-murdery household for the band to crash in, you know, just for the night, we’ll buy you a six-pack blah blah blah. The babes! The booze! That scene in that one movie where the guy declares himself a “golden god” and falls into the pool or whatever (who even remembers anyway, that movie wasn’t that good, DEAL WITH IT). Such is the life of the touring indie rock band: a whirlwind of stank-ass vans, Cheeto crumbs, and DREAMS.

You know, a lot of bands go on tour for a couple weeks. A month maybe. Maybe they go to St. Louis. Maybe they go to Pennsylvania. If it’s 2013, they go to North Carolina to play Hopscotch. (Every band is playing Hopscotch this year.) But not Suuns. They’re not just playing Hopscotch, people. They’re playing the sexy parts of Canada. They’re playing a few East Coast dates. And they’re playing every single country in Europe — almost — including some that may or may not be only located in fairy tales. They’ve got a stop at Glastonbury! A stop at Montreal Jazz Fest! A stop at the seductively named Nuits Secretes fest in France. Ooooh secretes. Then it’s back to North America for a few tour dates… and maybe some new socks.
