Kurt Vile Announces Tour

    Kurt Vile spent a large part of 2011 on the road promoting the excellent Smoke Ring for My Halo, and it looks like he’s going to continue in the same vein in 2012. The singer has just announced a set of shows in late May, which will precede a number of dates in Europe this summer, including appearances at the Benicassim Festival in Spain (July 12) and the OFF Festival in Poland (Aug. 3). Vile has a few touring commitments to fill in March, too.
