Ted Leo Announces Solo Tour Dates for 2011

    It’s been a pretty good year for Ted Leo. He released the acclaimed album The Brutalist Bricks with his band the Pharmacists and undertook a successful tour (for a breakdown of the album, read Leo’s interview from March with this writer).


    Come the new year, Leo will be (presumably) deconstructing the highly arranged songs from that album to undertake a tour all by his lonesome. He’ll also be playing some of his earlier material. Tour dates were just announced by his label, Matador Records. They’re as follows:
