Woods announce 2015 tour dates and that, sure, they guess they'll play a set at their own festival

Woo hoo! I know it’s only March right now, but… bring on the summertime, right guys? I can see it all now: barbecues, domestic beer with citrus pre-added to it, babes/dudes decked out in their skimpiest and/or neon-est attire, street corner mimes getting drunk in the park while nearby circus bears juggle flaming bowling pins… and of course, in the background of it all, Woods playing their brand of shamble-y indie-psych in a ramshackle band-shell. Oh yeah! Can’t you just picture it too?

Well, if you can, then GOOD NEWS! It won’t be long until our psychotropic dreams come true. Woods just announced a huge run of North American and European tour dates, beginning in May and running through August, in support of last year’s With Light and Love album. The tour will include stops at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch, as well as their very own Woodsist Festival (yeah, I can’t blame them, I guess, I’d headline my own fest too).

And just in case the above information doesn’t seem “feel-good” and “summery” enough already, the band is also teaming up with their like-minded buds in Real Estate and Alex Bleeker and the Freaks for some of the shows. Ahhhh. I can practically see the pail of Bud Light Limes and sweet badminton action now! …Oh shit. Wait. Now I can also see the hordes of killer bees stinging me, horrible sun searing my wimpy thighs, and fat-ass mounted police arresting me for possession! Fuck, I forgot! I totally hate summer.
