Au Revoir Simone Plots Tour

It's no secret that touring comprises a huge part of Au Revoir Simone's collective life as a band, and the Brooklyn-based trio will prove that again this spring, with the gigantic world tour they’ve just announced. Dates are in support of the group's latest synth-pop opus, Still Night, Still Light, being released through the girls’ own imprint on May 19.

In a recent conversation with them, we were enlightened as to how many adventures these girls seem to find while on the road, from cars breaking down in Texas to dropping musical gear into Italian toilets and being robbed while eating falafels. The fun starts in Paris, tomorrow.
