Apologies for the weak pun, and apologies to those Canucks who rely on a U.S.-based internet music zine for their tour news, because you have indeed missed some Herman Dune shows. Perhaps you should keep more of an eye out, so then next time you won't miss out on the sassy musical stylings of David-Ivar and Neman Herman Düne again. I don't know, maybe you were worried about the polar bears or your igloo melting and failed to notice that France's premier anti-folk band are hitting up North America in support of their upcoming album, Next Year In Zion. It certainly isn't my fault.

Nothing to regret for those of us in God's chosen country! All U.S. dates are with lovely and talented Texan Jolie Holland (we won't talk about her involvement with The Be Good Tanyas). And, as for all you Canucks, you've lucked out: some Canadian dates have just been added to the tour.

Next Year In Zion will be released in the States October 21. Here's the tracklisting:
