More Double Dagger Next Week

Double Dagger are playing the Zodiac next Thursday, March 5th. My excitement for their new album has now grown to epic proportions. The band is currently finishing up with mastering and artwork, and we can all assume the album art will be brilliant yet again.

Thrill Jockey are doing the honors of releasing More in May, Double Dagger's debut with the Chicago-based label. The show next week features New Flesh and Sick Weapons as support. They play the same space March 21st with Future Islands and Child Bite, with some shows in New York spattered intermittently.

Sample the most important song to come out of Baltimore in 2007 below. If you're not already familiar, "Luxury Condos for the Poor" rocks everything wrong with urban renewal and Baltimore's real estate landscape. One can only hope the new album will include More intellectually luminous attacks on our society's missteps.
