Published Jul 19, 2011Following the news that Vancouver fuzz pop rumblers Needles//Pins would be recording an LP for Lethbridge, AB-based record label Mammoth Cave Recording Co., the inter-provincial love-in continues with the news that the band will join the Moby Dicks for a Canadian tour.
For the uninitiated, the Moby Dicks hail from Lethbridge and include members of Fist City, Myelin Sheaths and other local bands. Two of them also happen to run the Mammoth Cave Recording Co.
Dubbed the "F$%# California Tour," the run of shows sees the groups ditch original plans for a West Coast trek, instead opting for shows in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. All dates are available below.
To commemorate the trip, the bands have also teamed up for a tour-only split seven-inch. Both Needles//Pins songs from the effort are available to stream below.
