stellastarr* Announce 2009 Summer U.S. Tour Dates :: w/ Austin date (The Parish)

I remember my first exposure to stellastarr* was with Richard back at Coachella 2004 in a tent back when it was still a two day festival. I recall him really like their debut album and mentioned wanting to check them out. It wasn't too crowded, so we headed right towards the front and I really ended up enjoying the set. Suffice to say, I bought the album after getting back home.

In 2005 they released Harmonies for the Haunted to lukewarm success. I actually enjoyed it, but still would choose their debut if given the choice. Now fast forward to the future, on July 7th stellastar* will be releasing their third album Civilized. You can listen to the band's first single, "Graffiti Eyes", as well as another song from the album entitled, "Warchild", on their Myspace.

This Summer the band will also hit the road for a short U.S. tour, their first in over 3 years. They'll be stopping by here in Austin to perform at The Parish on July 27, those tickets are only $12. Tickets for all the dates go on sale tomorrow at 11AM (CST), except the Boston show (listen to WFNX for tickets announcements for that one).
