Teenage Fanclub will return North America beginning September 22 to tour in support of their new record, Shadows. While here, the band will also appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on September 28. And lucky fans in Seattle and Portland will get the full Merge treatment of Teenage Fanclub, Superchunk and Telekinesis all in one night!
The brilliance of Shadows, like all the best Teenage Fanclub records, is that it sounds like everything they’ve ever done and like nothing anyone else has ever done, all on one album. It may be a considered and well put-together record, but it has all the spontaneity of Bandwagonesque. It may have a deceptively simple feel, but it’s as polished and intelligent as Grand Prix. And despite the input of others and new ideas, it’s still a record that only the three members of Teenage Fanclub could make.
Shadows is available on CD and digital download now in the Merge store, and from your favorite independent record store and digital music providers.
“Shadows is a work of rare craft, from a band now inclined to leave behind something timelessly beautiful.”

“Proof that youth is a state of mind you need never outgrow.” ~ Spin Magazine
