Chicago rockers Ganser are getting back out on the road, announcing a fall U.S. tour in support of Modern English, Bartees Strange and Algiers.
The band’s 18-date run begins at their hometown’s Thalia Hall on Aug. 26, sticking mostly to the Midwest and East Coast through September, including another Chicago stop for Sept. 18’s Riot Fest, before heading down south for a half-dozen more October shows, including a set at Austin’s Levitation Festival.
Ganser are supporting their acclaimed sophomore album Just Look at That Sky, one of Paste’s top albums of 2020, as well as their 2021 remix EP Look at the Sun, which featured remix collaborations from Andy Bell (GLOK), Sad13, and Adam Faulkner of Girl Band, as well as a pair of the band’s new tour-mates, Algiers and Bartees Strange.
“We’re excited to be hitting the road with such a diverse group of artists,” says Ganser’s Alicia Gaines in a statement. “We had the opportunity of collaborating with Bartees and Algiers last year on the remix EP, and to finally be playing shows in person together, it’s really something else.”
