After a one-off Seattle show in mid-June, they’ll launch a cross-country jaunt July 2 in Minneapolis. The tour includes two stops in Canada and ends back home in Seattle at the Capitol Hill Block Party July 25.

The Brothers spent the good majority of last year traversing North America, with opening stints for A.F.I., Cursive, and The Used as well as on their own headlining stretches. For a summer vacation, they toured Europe with Seattle compatriots Pretty Girls Make Graves.

Earlier this year, they headlined a series of shows up and down the West Coast.

The surreal, howled lyrics – from two lead vocalists – and harsh guitars of the Brothers’ first two albums, This Adultery Is Ripe and March On Little Children, earned the band the attention of ARTISTdirect Records and producer Rich Robinson (At The Drive-In, Slipknot). The result, Burn, Piano Island, Burn, was released in March of 2003.
