The Dig: May Tour Dates With The Joy Formidable

On the heels of tours with both Editors and The Antlers, and Portugal. The Man and Port O'Brien, New York City's fast rising up-and-comers The Dig have announced new May dates in support of The Joy Formidable. The band will first perform at the inaugural Truck America festival at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY, on April 30th before embarking on their week-long trip with the UK band. The tour will begin May 1st at a sold-out show at the Mercury Lounge in The Dig's hometown and will end May 8th in Albany, NY, at Jillian's.


Having recently inked a distribution deal with Megaforce, The Dig's debut album Electric Toys - recorded this past summer with producer Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Antony & the Johnsons, The Ramones, Bishop Allen) - will now be released June 8th. This evening, meanwhile, viewers can tune in to NBC's new drama Trauma to hear a preview of the album's slow-build-to-burn opener "Carry Me Home," which will be featured on tonight's episode (9pm EST/8pm CST). This is the second primetime song placement for the young band: album track "Look Inside" was featured on The CW's The Vampire Diaries in January. Multiple tracks can currently be heard on the band's MySpace page, while "You're Already Gone" can be downloaded here.


The Dig's summer touring plans will be announced soon.
