Here’s another tour announcement from a band whose latest album is definitely on my list of favorites for 2011: M83 (album: Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming). After selling out a bunch of US dates in 2011, M83 announced they’ll be returning to North American in 2012. Unfortunately, I was unable to catch them at their recent NYC shows, but I keep hearing great things about their live show and I can really see these songs translating well to the concert setting.
