College rock faves the Dandy Warhols have announced dates for the first leg of a planned fall North American tour in support of their newest album, "Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia," starting on September 29 in Nashville, Tennessee.
San Francisco's Creeper Lagoon will open for the Warhols on the upcoming shows, which are currently scheduled through an October 16 performance in Chicago. The Dandy Warhols will then head to the land down under for a few Australian gigs in late October before returning to the States to resume their tour in November.
Creeper Lagoon will use the shows to tout its upcoming six-song EP, "Watering Ghost Garden," due out via SpinArt Records on October 3. The release marks the first new material since Creeper's critically acclaimed debut, "I Become Small And Go," in 1998, and the band plans to issue its second album on DreamWorks Records in March.
The Dandy Warhols have just recorded a cover of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's
classic protest song, "Ohio," for inclusion on the soundtrack to "Last Party 2000," a political documentary from Donovan Leitch set to air on TV on November 6 (see "Third Eye Blind, Rage On Tap For 'Last Party' Soundtrack").
A rough mix of the "Ohio" cover will be included on an upcoming promotional EP, "Tales From Slabtown, Vol. 2," due to be serviced to college stations in the next few weeks. The "Tales From Slabtown" disc will also feature the Dandy Warhols' version of AC/DC's "Hells Bells," as well as a remix of their current single, "Bohemian Like You."
