It's been an exciting few weeks for fans of Springfield, Mo., indie-poppers Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (of whom there should be way, way more): Their new album was announced, their new single was released, and now we have the details on their forthcoming fall tour. They'll be bringing their surprisingly muscular live show to the Midwest, East Coast, and Canada starting Aug. 31.
In other Yeltsin news, the boys have released a making-of clip for their upcoming record. Like the clip that preceded their last album (these guys are nothing if not consistent), this one features the pre-pubescently voiced singer/guitarist Phillip Dickey drolly narrating over a series of homemade hijinks (among them: members of the band practicing shirtless, a dog driving stick-shift, and an almost-innapropriately-epic shot of the guys staring off into distant fireworks). Judging by the album clips playing in the background, this album is probably going to sound a whole lot like Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.
