After just releasing his newest record 'See Mystery Lights' earlier this Summer alongside new band member Claire Evans, Jona Bechtolt AKA YACHT has confirmed details of both a US and European tour beginning immediately.
Joined by none other than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on a few of their States dates, the now-duo begun yesterday in Portland alongside YYYs and have five more dates with Karen-O and Co planned. They have one tomorrow and another the day after (September 9th and 10th respectively) and both are at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, California. The remaining three take place over the course of September.
After seven more US dates the band then take their strange, fizzling electronic pop to Europe, beginning in Switzerland on September 30th and running through eleven more Euro dates before finally finishing off the entire tour with a further two dates back in the US. A November 14th gig in Florida marks their final date.
No UK plans to be seen unfortunately.
