The Besnard Lakes Spring Tour, Fallon Show and SXSW Happenings

If you’ve been paying attention to your internet, you should have an inkling that The Besnard Lakes is going to reign down holy horse fire upon the record players of the world with their March 9th (8th in the UK) release, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night.

The Besnard Lakes shall then rule the kingdom, and they will traverse all of the climate zones of North America in a glittering night fog. Before all that, though, they will travel to Austin, TX to clink Tecates with their SXSW minions and play a roaring song.

While more will be set in stone, it’s going to be possible for SXSW festival-goers to see the band several times over the week. This is what we have so far – get ready to synch those icals:
