Django Django at Glasslands, March 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Django Django have finally found a U.S. label to release their terrific debut album. Domino imprint Ribbon Music (home to John Maus and Lower Dens) will have it in the shops on September 25 with an early digital release via iTunes on August 14. The band also just released a video for the album's lead track, "Hail Bop," and you can watch that below.
Around the time of the LP's release, the band will head across the Atlantic for a North American tour, including a NYC stop at Bowery Ballroom on Oct 2. UPDATE: Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 25 at noon.
The band blew the lid off Glasslands back in March, go see them on this tour if you can. All Django Django North American tour dates are listed below.
