Headlights

Headlights shine sound a lot like Stars. Today, Pitchfork gave them a higher rating than Ratatat and the same score as Outkast (which isn't actually saying much). More MP3s @ YANP, and they're playing Galapagos in Brooklyn on November 3rd which means they're in NYC for CMJ. All million tour dates below....

PRESS RELEASE
The hardest working band in indie rock is back. Following a 72 date spring tour Headlights took the summer off to recoup and rehearse. They are gearing up to hit the road in support of their critically acclaimed debut album Kill Them With Kindness, which comes out via Polyvinyl this Tuesday August 22nd.

The band kicks off their 50+ date fall tour this Wednesday in Dekalb, IL and wraps things up in late November at the Empty Bottle in Chicago. The band will be joined by labelmates Decibully for the first 25 shows. The two bands will pair up and head west. Sharing members and due to rising gas prices they will all pile into one van together. From there Headlights will head east, including a stop at this year's CMJ Music Marathon.

After their massive fall tour is over, Headlights will spend the winter recording songs for a split EP with Suicide Squeeze band Metal Hearts. The split EP will be released on Polyvinyl in the spring of 2007. After recording, Headlights will tour Europe, which will be followed by a spring tour with Metal Hearts in support of their split release.
