The Week in Tours

With winter safely behind us and countless artists emerging from their respective hibernations, it’s safe to say ears (and livers) across the globe will be working overtime this spring. Here’s a taste of the musical goodness set to travel across the globe.

Japan-based-transcendent post-rockers Mono set out with fellow eastern hypnotists World’s End Girlfriend in tow. New York’s decade-in-the-making disco duo A Touch of Class shows the West Coast how to party. Brooklyn’s pastoral synth-pop trio Au Revoir Simone journeys across the globe, spreading its infectious (and totally adorable) sound. And El-P, in support of his consistent new record, I’ll Sleep When Your Dead, takes on, well, the world too.
