The Rural Alberta Advantage

The Rural Alberta Advantage's 1/12 Mercury Lounge show is sold out, but luckily it won't be that long before they're back in town as part of a tour that will kick off on March 9th and will include a pair of NYC stops: March 10th at Bowery Ballroom (ticket info forthcoming) and March 12th at Knitting Factory (ditto). Shortly afterward, the band will head down south to take part in the SxSW debauchery again.

The tour is in celebration of Departing, their new LP due via Saddle Creek on March 1st of 2011. Full tour dates, Departing art/tracklisting, and some videos, below...
