Syracuse New York band Ra-Ra-Riot just became a wee bit more Northwesternly yesterday, when beloved Seattle label Barsuk added them to their roster.
Barsuk will release the band's full-length debut, The Rhumb Line, on August 19th for North America, and V2 Europe will release it elsewhere later this fall.
The band just passed through Seattle, and have only a few remaining forthcoming tour dates, but if you live in the middle of the country, you might want to check one of these shows out:
June 14 – Westword Music Festival (Denver, CO)
July 6 – Summerfest (Milwaukee, WI)
July 26 – Wicker Park Festival (Chicago, IL)
Congrats to band and label!
