As the world enjoys the last days of summer, Clare & the Reasons are headed back to the UK for a tour that is still adding dates. The tour includes stops at landmark UK festivals, such as Fringe, Connect and End of the Road. The group will join up with My Brightest Diamond halfway through for a co-headlining European leg.
Fargo Records, the French label boasting such artists as Andrew Bird, Jesse Sykes, Against Me, and Ron Sexmith, will be proudly re-releasing The Movie in all European territories excluding the UK. On October 7th at La Cigale, Chris Garneau, My Brightest Diamond and Clare & the Reasons will join forces to celebrate Fargo Records.
Clare and the Reasons were recently added to the Dublin Fringe Fest playing a night of music with Duke Special. They'll be performing the songs that Manchon and Special have co-written for the upcoming Duke Special release.
After the European dates, Clare & the Reasons will be announcing more exciting news for the States, and eventually will be settling into the studio to record their sophomore album.
