Sub Pop has announced its signing of the Pacific Northwest rock band Built to Spill, to release music for the label in 2022 and beyond. Over the course of 8 studio albums, a compilation, a live record, and legendary live shows, Doug Martsch and his band have created some of our favorite music of the last few decades. We’re feeling pretty pleased with ourselves on this one.
In celebration of this news, Built to Spill is sharing its first round of western US tour dates for 2022 which begins with a two-night stand January 26th-27th at The Crocodile in Seattle, and runs through February 11th-12th with a two-night stand at the Fillmore in San Francisco. Tickets for these shows go on sale Friday, October 8th at 1 pm (local). The 2022 dates will feature direct support from Prism Bitch, with Oh, Rose, and Itchy Kitty opening on select dates.
Visit Built to Spill's official website for more info.
Built to Spill also has a few headlining shows preceding the early 2022 run. This includes four dates with Team Dresch (December 16th-19th, 2021). Please find the band’s current tour schedule below.
Built to Spill is currently working on its Sub Pop debut, the follow-up to 2015’s Untethered Moon, due in 2022. The band also recently released Built to Spill Plays the Songs of Daniel Johnston, a covers album featuring 11 songs from Johnston’s storied career.
Built to Spill is Doug Martsch, Melanie Radford, and Teresa Esguerra.
