Trans Am Preps New Album and Tour
After a two-year period during which Nathan Means, Phil Manley, and Sebastian Thomson (a.k.a. Trans Am) resided on three different continents, the post-rock trio known for searing guitars and political fervor has reconvened and is ready to hit the road once more.
A North American tour is scheduled in support of their forthcoming album, Sex Change, which is both a sampling of what the boys were up to while scattered around the world and what's in store for fans in the future.
Limited presale tickets are available for the tour. For non-procrastinators, buy your tickets early and get the album for a mere $8.00.
Sex Change is out February 20, 2007 on Thrill Jockey.
