More Wonderful Plain White T’s Shows

If Plain White T’s missed your town on the first leg of their 2011 U.S. headline tour, listen up because the alternative band has announced a round of brand new dates throughout the states.

The group is touring in support of its sixth studio album, Wonders of the Younger. The album was released in December on Hollywood Records as the follow-up to 2008’s Big Bad World.

Fans have snatched up Wonders of the Younger, with the album hitting No.1 on the iTunes Rock Album chart and the lead single “Rhythm of Love” selling more than 800,000 digital copies. Critics have also responded well to the release. The Boston Herald describes the album as an “ambitious effort, a mini-rock opera … the results are, well, wondrous.”
