Wanna hear a secret about Twin Shadow's George Lewis, Jr? Too bad, you'll have to wait until you go see his "True Story" tour this spring

Pop the collar on your jean jacket and slide into your 511’s because Twin Shadow is going back on tour! No word of new music on the horizon, as the tour is once again in support of George Lewis Jr.’s 2012 album Confess (TMT Review), but the tour does have a theme. Like previous Twin Shadow tours, such as the “Haircut” tour (where George got a new haircut for every single show) and the “Ton Up” tour (which featured Man vs. Food-like eating competitions on stage), this new tour is aptly titled “True Stories” and will feature either Lewis Jr. or Lewis Sr. telling the audience a unique, true story from their familial past.

I’ve seen Twin Shadow a couple of times and while I can’t recall any audience interaction beyond the usual between-song chatter, I do remember the performances always being very solid. For die-hard fans, getting a little piece of the Lewis family backstory definitely makes up for the fact that you probably just saw them live with the same tracks a couple of months ago. For the TRUE die-hard, bordering-on-stalker Twin Shadow fans (we know you’re out there), you’ll need to take a month-long sabbatical in order to hear every single one of the juicy tales from the Lewis family, as each city will experience a totally different true story. You gotta have a gimmick.
