Spoon announce tour, plans to scour North America for additional details to bolster vague album title

One morning, Britt Daniel, woke up, threw the covers off of his lanky body and stared himself in the mirror. “But who are ‘they’?” he asked himself, gesturing wildly, making a wide-ranging toothpastey mess around the bathroom. You see, last year, Daniel and his buddies in Spoon, Jim Eno, Rob Pope, Eric Harvey, and Alex Fischel, had the audacity to assert that They Want[ed] [His] Soul, but this morning, insight came like the flash of fame’s camera: who exactly is “they?”

Daniel knew what had to happen. He rushed downstairs to call his bandmates, but not before struggling through his morning bowl of cereal (he tends to eat it with a fork you see, for he hates it when things are too on the nose). Cheerios dispatched, Daniel laid a slew of dates for his buddies and they assented. Spoon would soon tour the country through May and June, overturning rocks, trees, and welcome mats looking for the mysterious “they.” The band would not rest until every single co-headlining date with either Future Islands or The Decemberists was put to bed. After hanging up the phone, the tour plotted in what people who actually books tours would describe as an “entirely unrealistically short period of time,” Daniel sat back, steeple-fingered and grinning — it had only just begun.
