Built To Spill has toured considerably over the past few years, and this fall the band is setting out once again. The group is currently working on a new album (after scrapping the last attempt), and recently added a new bassist, Jason Albertini, and drummer, Steve Gere, to the lineup. (The departure of the former members was civil.) The as-yet-unnamed LP will be the group's first since 2009's There Is No Enemy. The guys will play the Rock For Oklahoma Benefit and Doe Bay Festival this summer, then after a two month break will play almost every day of October and November. Slam Dunk will open many of the shows, and other guests include Genders and The Warm Hair. A full list of dates is below.
