What was previously a handful of dates with Crystal Stilts has turned into a full-on tour extravaganza for Vivian Girls. The New York-based band began another round of dates this week, and they'll be picking up the likes of Dark Meat, Jay Reatard, King Khan, and others to share the stage with along the way.
Meanwhile, on October 7, In the Red will unveil a re-release of Vivian Girls' self-titled debut album, which was originally pressed up on vinyl and limited to 500 copies. A new 7", "I Can't Stay," will precede the re-release, with a couple new songs the band's of lo-fi pop loveliness.
