The Magnetic Fields released their tenth album Love at the Bottom of the Sea on Merge in March and visited Europe and North America in a tour chronicled at TouratheBottomoftheSea.com. The band will extend their tour this fall with a small number of performances around the east coast and midwest with a special opening act reading by novelist Emma Straub, also known as The Mag Fields’ merch gal extraordinaire!

The band will soon announce further solo Stephin Merritt appearances and an additional full band appearance this fall. Keep up with the Magnetic Fields on Twitter, Facebook and at Houseoftomorrow.com.
