David Bazan plans 10th anniversary run behind Petro the Lion album
Singer/songwriter David Bazan, mastermind of former indie outfit Pedro the Lion, will spend six weeks on the road this fall with his backing band to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their seminal album, "Control."
The Seattle native, along with bassist Andy Fitts and drummer Alex Westcoat, will begin the fall trek with a Nov. 1 show in Boise, ID. The 34-date excursion canvases the nation and includes one Canadian performance slated for Nov. 11 in Toronto. Bazan will finish up the schedule with a Dec. 15 hometown concert.
Ticketing information is available now at the musician's website.
Bazan plans to perform Pedro the Lion's third album, "Control," in its entirety on the fall tour, which marks the 10th anniversary of the Jade Tree Records release.
Pedro the Lion's four full-length studio sets--"It's Hard to Find a Friend," "Winners Never Quit," "Control" and "Achilles Heel"--have been remastered and will be re-released on vinyl in late October. The 1999 EP, "The Only Reason I Feel Secure," will also be available.
Bazan has released two solo albums, the most recent of which--"Strange Negotiations"--surfaced in 2011 and peaked at No. 32 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart.
