Divine Fits has confirmed its first ever dates in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle and Toronto.
The announcement of the newly added shows comes a day after the July 31 release of Divine Fits' first single "My Love Is Real," the 7-inch of which features a non-LP B-side cover of Camper Van Beethoven's "I Was Born In A Laundromat."
As previously announced, special golden tickets will be inserted into ten random copies of "My Love Is Real" at select indie retailers in each of the preceding trio of headline dates in the hometowns of Divine Fits' Britt Daniel (Austin TX on August 1), Dan Boeckner (Montreal QC on August 3) and Sam Brown (Columbus OH on August 6). Participating locations are Waterloo and End of an Ear in Austin, Phonopolis in Montreal, and Used Kids and Magnolia Thunderpussy in Columbus. The band will also be playing August 5 in Chicago, where the golden ticket copies will be randomly distributed among the city's three Reckless Records locations.
Each golden ticket will admit the winner and a guest to the Divine Fits show in that city. For more information on the golden ticket competition, newly announced tour dates, and personal notes from each band member to his respective hometown, visit DivineFits.com.
The newly released limited-edition "My Love is Real" 7-inch is available now in the Merge store as well as pre-orders of A Thing Called Divine Fitson CD or LP. "My Love Is Real" is also available digitally as a stand-alone track or as an instant download with pre-orders of A Thing Called Divine Fits placed at iTunes.
