Man Man Announce Tour With Cursive & Dates With Gogol Bordello

Man Man Announce Tour with Cursive & Dates with Gogol Bordello

Philly's Finest Also on Bill for Second Annual Rothbury Festival

Man Man are taking to the road with Cursive starting April 24th in Dallas, TX and Gogol Bordello starting May 29th in Kansas City, MO. The raucous Philadelphia five-piece have been touring the past year in support of their latest Rabbit Habits, called "one of the year's best rock albums (devoid of any guitar parts mind you)" by Pitchfork. Filter wrote "the songs are smart, kooky, and even sexy with an inert disregard for commonality - - - and that's good enough for us to order a glass of whatever they're having."

Legendary for non-stop live shows that involve swapping most instruments and improving others, Man Man had lately been in songwriting hibernation. In addition to the Cursive and Gogol Bordello tours, they will also celebrate the 4th of July weekend at the Rothbury festival with the likes of Bob Dylan and the Dead.
