Mates of State: Fall Tour, New Album

VIDEO FOR NEW SONG "MARACAS" AVAILABLE NOW

Mates of State have announced their first string of U.S. tour dates for 2011. Starting on September 21, the band will tour the East Coast, kicking off at D.C.'s 9:30 Club and playing through October 12 where they will visit New York City's Webster Hall. The tour is in support of the band's newest record, Mountaintops, which was recently finished and will be released on September 13 via Barsuk Records.

Mountaintops is the band's full-length follow up to 2008's critically acclaimed Re-Arrange Us. The self-produced album was written and recorded over the last year and a half in six different studios with multiple different engineers.

The band is also releasing the first music video for a song from the new album, "Maracas", which premiered yesterday. Watch the video below, which pays tribute to The Old Grey Whistle Test, the seminal British music television show from the 70's and 80's.
