Update: The dates keep slowly trickling in. I’m adding a “NEW” next to the most recently added dates.
It’s my understanding (although I have not received official confirmation) that Tally Hall is finally beginning to record their long-awaited major label debut record. Yes, debut. Since Marvin’s was essentially all done before the Atlantic signing, neither the band or Atlantic considered it “Atlantic’s”. So this forthcoming release will hopefully have the big push behind it that we all know it deserves.
Based on my own calculations, they’ll probably be out there from around now until mid-November. At that time, they’re going to tour around a little with Rooney. This will probably not be an international tour by any means. I suspect the purpose is to revisit areas they’ve played to inform the people “the new album’s coming, here’s some music from it, and please keep in touch so you know when it comes out so you can buy it.”
Maybe they will tour their way back to NYC, hooking up with other bands along the way? Whatever the case may be, don’t get upset if you don’t see your city listed below. The tour you’re gonna want to really pay attention to is the one that happens around the time the album is released, which I’m still predicting will be in the first quarter of 2010.
So far, all the dates are opening for Rooney except those that are detailed otherwise. EDIT: Crash Kings will be joining for many/all dates. Harper Simon is also listed as an opener for some dates. Here are the dates we’re aware of:
