We Were Promised Jetpacks in NYC in Oct (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
We Were Promised Jetpacks

We Were Promised Jetpacks toured North America with Fat Cat labelmates Twilight Sad, BrakesBrakesBrakes and Frightened Rabbit in September and October (though FR didn't play on the leg of the tour that hit NYC). That included shows at Bowery Ballroom and Southpaw.

Well, Jetpacks will be back in 2010, though only two dates of a tour have been announced so far. One will happen on Thursday, February 11th at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are on sale. Before then, the group has plenty of dates in the UK and Europe. You can see them below.

Fat Cat friends Frightened Rabbit just released a 7" single for new song "Swim Until You Cant See Land" (b-side "Fun Stuff") in the UK and Europe. That comes stateside on December 8th; the single artwork and "Swim" music video are below. The single comes in advance of their forthcoming third LP, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks, set to be released on March 1st of next year. The Tracklist for that new album is below too.

Tour dates, all the above-mentioned stuff, and a five-part video of WWPJ being interviewed by John Norris at Fontana's between gigs, after the jump...
