Belle and Sebastian

"We're still in sunny L.A., in the final stages of recording the album, but plans are already afoot for touring throughout the rest of 2010" wrote Belle & Sebastian at the end of May. Those 2010 touring plans include shows in Europe, Asia and North America (with a TBA trip to South America). As part of that (and as previously reported), the band will be playing Brooklyn's Williamsburg Waterfront on September 30th with Teenage Fanclub (who have a new album of their own coming out). Tickets for the NYC show go on "Internet Presale" Thursday at 10am.

They'll continue on for a show in L.A., a pair in Mexico and a handful more in Canada and the US this fall. Full tour dates are below (Las Vegas still TBA?).

Also due in 2010, ex-Belle & Sebastian singer Isobel Campbell will be releasing her third album with collaborator Mark Lanegan, called Hawk and due August 16th on V2/Cooperative Music. Guests include ex-Smashing Pumpkin James Iha and songwriter Willy Mason.

All B&S tour dates, and Hawk cover art, below...

Me Love Belle & Sebastian. Listening to them is like eating a good cheese plate on a rainy night.

they've been in LA for how long and still booked the most shit-tastic venue in the whole city?

if you're a real fan you'll be upfront so it really shouldn't matter where they are playing. i really couldn't give 2 fucks what venue B&S decides to play. it's going to be amazing.

Do these guys work outdoors? It seems like a gentle breeze could blow their music up into the ether to be lost forever

nah they are great outdoors..battery park & prospect park shows were stellar. They get this twee tag but they are pretty rocking & grooving live... I mean they aren't Metallica or anything but they aren't a bunch of introverts slumped over their instruments... they know how to entertain thats for sure... it will be a lovely night
