Y'know, sometimes I feel bad for force-feeding you news on bands I love so very dearly, knowing full well but a fraction of you will care... but when it comes to Enablers, each and every one of you should be opening your ears and unplugging the stoppers on your hearts to taste their bittersweet fruits.
The San Francisco-based four-piece have announced updated UK tourdates, which can be seen below. They tour in support of their wonderful second album, Output Negative Space, due for release this side of the pond on April 10th. A masterful, majestic piece of intense post-rock, the album is capped by some wonderful lyrics - delivered spoken-word - by Pete Simonelli. If Saul Williams possessed Nick Cave, the result would be halfway there.
Those that don't know Simonelli from Adam can wise up to his poetic prose when he reads from the Enablers lyric sheet for Gilles Peterson's Something Else show, broadcast on Radio 1 on Sunday March 19th, at 11pm. You can follow this link for more information.
Those live dates currently look like this (we can't stress just how much you should go)...
24 Brighton Freebutt
25 Birmingham Hare and Hound
26 Leeds Joseph's Well
27 Exeter Cavern Club
28 Manchester Star and garter
29 London Vibe Bar (not Tatty Bogles, as we'd previously reported)
30 Liverpool Bar Fresa
There's a TBA on the 31st, too, so don't be surprised if the band take in another British show. The band's MySpace page, for those that dig that crazy stuff, can be found here.
