Guided by Voices announce fall tour extension in support of their latest LP, Please Be Honest

What do you know: you can now catch two of your favorite veteran indie rock standard-bearers live this fall. After Built to Spill announced they’re rescheduling a bunch of West Coast concerts for November, Guided by Voices have extended their fall North American tour, with former guitarist Doug Gillard rejoining the group.

Gillard, who frontman and chief composer Robert Pollard calls “one of the best guitar players in the world, if not the best,” was a regular member of GBV between 1997 and 2004, and performed on the well-received albums Isolation Drills and Earthquake Glue.

Speaking of albums, Guided by Voices have a new one out: their twenty-second LP, Please be Honest. It was recorded entirely by Pollard during a temporary breakup of the band, just like the classic 1993 uber-lo-fi record Vampire on Titus.
