August 24th marks the release date of Ra Ra Riot’s sophomore album, The Orchard. They will soon be embarking on a pretty extensive tour, including playing in Toronto at the Molson Amphitheatre with City and Colour and Tegan and Sara on August 28th. The band will also support Wintersleep during a Western Canadian tour in November. Full tour dates are on their MySpace page here.
The Orchard follows the band’s debut full-length, The Rhumb Line, which was released two years ago and hailed by such publications as Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly which called it, “worthy of a living room dance party.”
The album is now available for pre-order at Gallery AC in digital and physical formats, including a deluxe limited edition CD+DVD package with a “making of” documentary. All pre-orders of The Orchard include with a free MP3 of the albums first single, “Boy.” Pssssst…you can also get “Boy” here by entering your email address! (It’s fantastic, so I suggest you just do it!)
