I cant wait. We've enjoyed playing a lot of these venues before. In fact Im tempted to make a tour T-Shirt with the dates on the back and "Art Brut; The Glass Ceiling Tour" on the front.

Im looking forward to having my birthday in Austin.I turn Thirty on 25th October. Last time we played our own show there I couldn't drink as I'd been to the Dentist in Houston the day before and was on really powerful pain killers. Paul, the guy who does our sound, told me that I did the whole set in the style of Frank Sinatra. Im looking forward to rectifying the image people in Austin might have of me being a crooner.

The San Francisco show is going to be a strange one we're playing two shows in the same night. I think the first is all ages. We're going to play two completely different shows though if you want to see us twice. I think I might go for a costume change too.

We are taking Princeton (Cambridge through to Seattle) and Surfer Blood (Denver onto NYC) with us they both sound pretty ace to me.

Come down and talk to me about DC Comics and The Replacements.

You could stop in Missoula, MT between Vancouver and Salt Lake . . .

aw, man! i got a ticket to see the SF show. Then I see this, that you're playing in Davis the next night? (I live in Davis) Do you know the venue?
Aint seen Art Brut in over 3 years, one time in SF, but used to go to a lot of gigs in London before i moved out here, like the Tate Modern gig with david devant. Aunty Mabel!

Love Art Brut, glad you have a blog I can follow. Don't know if this question has been asked a lot but, you say "yes, emily kane is real" but is that her real name and have you ever heard anything ABOUT her since? I love that song and can't wait to see you live.

Please come back to the US specifically Austin. This should be top priority after the French Resistance tour, which I'll be at in may.
