Lonely Dear to Tour with Andrew Bird

Lonely Dear has come a long way since leader Emil Svanängen was self-releasing CD-Rs via his own website, and 2009 is looking to be quite busy for these indie-folk making Swedes. The band, who recently signed to Polyvinyl, will release the bittersweet, meticulously crafted Dear John on January 27.

Just a couple weeks before the album's release, the guys will head Stateside, where a long list of tour dates, many of which are alongside Andrew Bird, await. With shows scheduled through March, it looks as though they'll be anything but lonely in the new year.

JENNIFER! YOU HAVE MISSPELLED THE BAND'S NAME! It is not the common word "Lonely" we expect, but the obscure "Loney"

I'm sure this will plague them across the world (last.fm has 500 listeners for the misspelling) but please do not contribute to this error.
