Midnight Movies: New Album, New Tour Dates

After doing the uber cool Spring Break thing with an enormous amount of shows at SXSW, Midnight Movies are finally releasing their new album Lion The Girl and hitting the road in support of the record with such amazing acts like Blonde Redhead, Autolux (where's their new album???) and The Raveonettes.

The quartet, fronted by Gena Olivier, channels new wave and psychedelic sounds and grooves, while paying homage bands like The Velvet Underground. A song like "Ribbons" could easily pass for Nico fronting Yo La Tengo, where "Souvenirs" could be an outtake from a My Bloody Valentine session. Make sure you check them out when they come to your town.

Lion The Girl is out on New Line Records April 24th.
