UK trio Shopping will release their terrific new album, The Official Body, on January 19 via Fatcat. It's a big step forward for the band who move beyond doing classic post-punk sonics right to writing a memorable set of songs that bring their own flavor to the proceedings, with spot-on production courtesy Edwyn Collins. You can check out the video for the song below.

Shopping will be on tour in North America beginning in March and most of the dates are with likeminded LA band French Vanilla (tickets). Those two bands will play NYC's Market Hotel on March 3. They will, of course, be stopping in Austin for SXSW as well, and have some shows with LIthics too. All dates listed below.
