The Magnetic Fields

The Magnetic Fields are happy to announce that they will be touring early next year in support of their forthcoming album, "Realism," which will be out on Nonesuch Records on January 26, 2010. The US and Canadian tour dates will take place in February and March. After their US and Canada dates, the band will be heading to Europe for a string of dates in mid- to late-March.

You can take a look at Realism's cover art, which is extremely similar to Distortion's cover art, below. Tracklist down there too.

The 2010 tour hits a bunch of major cities and includes three NYC shows over the course of two separate visits. Most dates are on presale now.

During the first NYC visit, the Magnetic Fields play BAM's Howard Gilman Opera House on Saturday, February 13th. There's a limited fanclub & BAM member presale on sale now. General sale tickets go up Friday, November 20th.

Then the band returns for shows at NYC's Town Hall on Sunday, March 10th and Monday, March 11th. Again there's a fanclub presale on sale now, then tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 20th at noon.
