New Cribs Tour Dates

The Cribs know my needs. My needs are to see those three unwashed pop geniuses sweat on me and possibly dribble just a little bit of beer and blood on me. Thank God they know me so well, cos they've just announced their newest string of US tour dates. Here's the word from their official MySpace:

"The Cribs have announced a run of new shows in America and Canada around their appearance on the Main Stage at Lollapalooza.

Nice opener choices, but Sean Na Na doesn't surprise me. Sean Na Na is the more palatable, indie-rock stylings of the reforming Har Mar Superstar (aka Sean Tillman). These guys are a fixture in the LA scene, and are definitely buddies of the Cribs. Minneapolis is their hometown, so no surprise there either.

The Cribs' Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever is, again, an amazing record. I cannot urge you enough to go out and buy it when they release it on July on Warner Bros. BUT, if you just can't wait to have that Wakefield brogue whispered in your headphone by the Jarmans, you can download it (from any country) on iTunes here.

Check out their first video from the album, "Men's Needs":
