Discos Be Warned: Shed Seven announce first North American tour since the ’90s

It may be 1987 Week here at Vanyaland, but the ’90s live forever in our hearts. So we’re naturally broken up to learn that while British rock band Shed Seven have this week announced their first North American tour since the height of Britpop, there is — inexplicably — no Boston date.

New England, your discos are safe from threats of burning down.

Shed Seven, led by frontman extraordinaire Rick Witter (he of the excellent twitter handle @Ricktw1tter), will play five shows on this side of the Atlantic in October. The closest to us here in Boston is an October 18 appearance at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, though there are worse ways to spend a few days than road tripping up to Toronto for the October 15 gig at Velvet Underground. The band also plays Philly, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Tickets go on sale Friday; get all the details via the links or on the flyer below.

We should also mention that Shed Seven are currently prepping their first new album since reforming a decade ago, the follow-up to 2001’s Truth Be Told. Interested parties can pre-oder it through its active Pledge campaign.
