NEW TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
(NEW YORK, NY–November 16, 2012) Having provided what Stereogum deemed “a shining example of a group of professionals seizing their televised moment and doing their goddam thing” with their network TV debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon back in September, Divine Fits return to slay yet another unsuspecting viewing audience tonight on The Late Show With David Letterman.
Today also marks the debut of a Divine Fits profile at TheCreatorsProject.com. Packed with engaging interviews, anecdotes and live footage, the 5-minute-and-change mini-doc recounts the tale of Britt Daniel, Dan Boeckner and Sam Brown coming together, discovering their chemistry and locking into the groove that resulted in this year’s insanely acclaimed A Thing Called Divine Fits (Merge) and an addictively enjoyable and ongoing tour.

And speaking of live shows, the Divine Fits in the flesh experience that recently moved Time Out Chicago to rave “Every inch the exception to the myth of the bloated supergroup, the Fits proved to be a perfect mix of the two frontmen’s strengths… the group powered through their set to roaring response from the crowd with more than enough firepower to warrant a higher-profile return trip to Chicago in the near future” has extended its live agenda through early 2013. See below for a full list of upcoming shows.
