Bad Veins today announced a 10-date tour supporting Scottish indie rock band We Were Promised Jetpacks. The Cincinnati-based, indie pop duo, comprised of Benjamin Davis (vocals, guitar, keys), Sebastien Schultz (drums) and a 1973 reel-to-reel named Irene, will kick off the tour with WWPJ on February 11th at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City.

With 2009 coverage including Spin Magazine, Spinner, Entertainment Weekly Online and MTV.com, Bad Veins debuted their first full-length and self-titled album to critical acclaim on July 21, 2009. Among the "Best of 2009" lists, Bad Veins were spotlighted in both ABC News Amplified and ESPN's "Top 10 Albums of 2009," and the single "Go Home" was featured on USA Today's Pop Candy "Top 20 Songs of 2009."

Having already played with acts including The Virgins, The Hold Steady, We Are Scientists and VHS or Beta, among others, Bad Veins is excited to again embark on tour. "We're psyched to get back on the road, especially with We Were Promised Jetpacks," said Benjamin Davis. "Sebastien and I caught them at Monolith and were blown away. We were super excited to find out they caught our set as well, and enjoyed it enough to ask us to support their tour." Added Sebastian Schultz, ""I walked away from SXSW last year with a short list of bands that really impressed me. Topping that list was WWPJ a band that Ben and I happened to share a showcase with early in the week. Since then, I've been a huge fan, and am thrilled we'll be playing with them in February."
