Sebadoh head out on Act Surprised tour
Veteran indie-rockers Sebadoh are embarking on a two-month summer tour of the USA and Canada in support of new record Act Surprised. The group's 9th studio album as a perfect showcase of their classicly lo-fi, nitty gritty sound and is their first record in six years, since 2013's Defend Yourself topped the Billboard 'New Alternative Artists' chart.
Although six years between records seems like a long time, the gap between their their last album and it's predecessor was a full fourteen years, so to longterm fans the unveiling of Act Surprised and its accompanying live dates will seem like a relatively quick turnaround. Frontman Lou Barlow has spent much of those inbetween periods touring with rock legends Dinosaur Jr - in which he was a founding member - having rejoined them in 2005 after almost two decades away. With stagecraft honed over 30 years, the return to the road with Sebadoh is set to be an unmissable run.
