Bishop Allen offer fall tour dates, new album update

Speak of the devils. Bishop Allen just hit us with a one-two punch of good news. First of all there’s the fall tour dates that stretch from NYC to LA, stopping everywhere along the way (except Kentucky…). But now they’ve also got good news on the next record. Christian Rudder posted this to the band’s myspace:

We’re about halfway done with this thing. There’s no title yet, but the songs are sounding really good; a bit more like our “Charm School” days than “Broken String”. It’s got a lot of energy, because that’s how we’re feeling: energetic. We got a slow start in the first half of the year, working on some other things, but the songs are coming quickly now. Sunshine always helps.

What great news. Here’re those tour dates…
