Additional U.S. Shows Sell Out
Australian Tour Dates Confirmed

(Friday, February 5) The video for “Written In Reverse,” the first single from Spoon’s recently released seventh album Transference, will be premiered today  at Pitchfork.com. The video, directed by Danny Clinch (photographer extraordinaire whose directorial credits include Tom Waits’ “Lie To Me,” Bruce Springsteen’s Devils & Dust DVD and Foo Fighters’ Skin + Bones), documents an actual live performance of the song recorded expressly for the video, expertly rendered in stark black and white.

Tickets recently went on sale for Spoon’s 2010 North American tour, which commences with a March 17 headlining appearance at Stubbs in Austin kicking off the annual South by Southwest conference. The tour’s March 27 show at Boston’s House of Blues and the first of two Minneapolis shows, April 2 at First Avenue, have just sold out, joining a pair of advance sell-outs March 22 and 23 at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club.

Spoon has also announced a run of Australian dates following the conclusion of the current run April 17 at the Coachella festival. The Australian tour kicks off April 30 in Melbourne.
