Woods announce fall tour over the river and through the ______ (hint: all the coolest bears shit there)

Aww, snap. Look out, all you pathetic one-percenters like Bono and Boney James! Unlike you and the rest of your fat, corporate, government-subsidized, national-act friends out there with their servants and geishas and fancy cars and goldfish and pet dogs who also own pet goldfish, Woods are actually rolling up their sleeves, gritting their teeth, and gearing up to do some freakin’ work! (Well, okay, maybe not actual WORK-work — they’re not going off to the steel mill or whatever; that’d be a pretty dumb way to promote their band anyway — but serious, diligent, rock band work.)

You know how their new album, Bend Beyond — their seventh effort overall which follows their prrretty dang good Sun and Shade — is coming out via Woodsist on September 18? Well GET THIS: they’re touring on the thing. Live! In person! Honest to god. No webcasts, no live broadcasts, no stand-ins, no franchised regional Woods’s playing simultaneously in every major US city. We’re talking the real deal. A handful of flesh-and-bone sunny psych hippies, a carload of Elephant 6 CDs, and a hilarious and morale-boosting taxidermied raccoon mascot. I know, right? Fucking old school.

So… yeah. Take note of the dates below the tracklist, all you rich, lazy, über-famous rock stars out there. Especially you, Boney James.
