Allo Darlin at Rock Shop (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Allo Darlin

Hey everyone. We had an amazing UK tour last week. Almost all of the shows were sold out and were some of the best fun crowds we've ever played to. England, Scotland and Wales - we salute you! Can't believe we waited so long to head out on a tour of our own turf....

Today our new US tour is announced - details over on the shows page. Yes we really are playing that punk festival in Austin. Yes - we can't wait!

Before that we will be heading into the studio to record our new album in April. Very excited, needless to say. We will again be working with Mr Simon Trought who produced our first record.

The above blog entry by Allo Darlin makes reference to both a new album (!) and "that punk festival in Austin" (aka Chaos in Tejas) where the band will play alongside the likes of Larm, Autopsy & Youth Of Today (but unfortunately no Curren$y who recently cancelled). And after Allo Darlin' plays Chaos, they'll head up north to play Mercury Lounge on June 8th as part of those above mentioned US dates that end eight days later in Philly. Tickets for the NYC shgow go on AMEX presale Wed, 2/9, at noon, and regular sale 48 hours later.

All tour dates and some videos, including Allo Darlin's cover of Ramones "I Wanna Be Sedated" (no word on that Allo Darlin' cover of "Distort Japan" but we'll keep you posted), below...
