Grouper announces European tour, where she'll single-handedly destroy buildings FREE OF CHARGE

2015’s already turning out to be one shifty bastard of a year. Forget all those cinematic promises of future technology, to be replaced by new and improved ways to pluck lengthy nose hairs; instead, the one doing the personal fooling is the apparitional Liz Harris a.k.a. Grouper, who released one of our favorite albums of 2014 last October. How misled I was; a press release announcing an album-supporting tour for the new year didn’t specify (in the subject line) that the tour is European and consists of only seven dates! Maybe we shouldn’t have expected more. Who knows what kind of rabid behavior Animal Collective engage in when they’re hitting the road. Ugh, what a turn-off.

Among the dates Grouper has scheduled: a performance at Teatre Maria Matos in Lisbon, Portugal — the primary nation-site of Ruins’ creation. That show in particular is said to contain “special piano,” but considering the aforementioned album contains so much piano anyway, I dare say you could probably say the same about the rest of the dates. Don’t forget to come back to America and give us some of that nigh-AOTY goodness, Liz.
