Damn. Frontman Zach Condon must be having a hell of a time scheduling all of his upcoming Amazon Prime deliveries of trumpet polishing cream, because Beirut — a.k.a. America’s most convincing Europeans — have just embarked on a shitload of new worldwide tour dates.

It seems the unofficial mantra that “we’re pretty popular in Europe” remains intact for the melancholic indie gods, as the band will be traversing the eastern shores of l’Atlantique from now thru October — including a novel August 21 pitstop in Gallipoli, Italy, which is the namesake town for the group’s recently released fifth studio LP.

US-based Beirut devotees need not be concerned, however, as a full set of November dates have been announced as well in North America, albeit mostly on the West Coast (see full list of dates and venues below).

In other Beirut-centric news, the band has also just released a video for new Gallipoli single “When I Die,” which features Condon and company reenacting an apparent fictional suicide cult routine in a Berlin-based Futuro 13 pod. If that sounds weird as shit to you, you’re not crazy — it is:
