M-B

Japanese noise rockers Melt-Banana were already announced for Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Music Fest and Maryland Deathfest (the only band playing both of those fests, in case you were wondering how much crossover they had), and they've now announced a lengthy North American tour surrounding them.

The tour hits NYC on May 23 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show aren't on sale yet but should be soon via Ticketfly.

No other bands announced for that leg, but the July/August portion of the tour is with Torche, who play their own Vitus show with Nothing and Wrong this month.

All dates are listed below...
