Built in Waste ready to hit the road. Today, the indie rock band led by Doug Martsch has announced their first slate of tour date for 2022 – with a bit of 2021 as well.
The veteran alt rockers will start on the West Coast before the end of the year with four performances in Washington and Oregon. Following the quartet’s December dates, the tour will also be available on Jan. 26 and 27 with two back-to-back performances at The Crocodile in Seattle.
From there, the trio will stop up and down the Pacific Coast – there are always two dates in several cities – including Portland, Sacramento, Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The openers ahead include Team Dresch, Prism Bitch, Dinosaur Jr., Oh, Rose, and Itchy Kitty.
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, Oct. 8 through Ticketmaster.
In addition to announcing the tour today, Built to Spill announced their signing with Sub Pop Records. According to the press release, the band plans to release a new album every 2022.
Back in January, Martsch’s short project Boise Cover Band shared their rendition of “Ashes to ashes,” the lead solo on David Bowie’s album in 1980 Awesome Monsters (and Super Creeps). Meanwhile, in June 2020, Built to Spill opened theirs tax album dedicated to Daniel Johnston after serving as the backing band for the late singer’s final tour.
