Fang Island To Carry On With Tour Plans Despite Stolen Van

03/03/2010
.
Just days after Fang Island purchased a new van to transport the Brooklyn anthemic guitar quintet on a slew of U.S. tour dates starting this month, the vehicle was stolen.

However, undeterred the eternally-optimistic band will continue with all upcoming tour dates and is attempting to raise funds for a replacement via its online merch outlet and "pay what you want" digital store. The band whose sound is described as "everyone high-fiving everyone" may want to add, "...except thieves."

Fang Island supports The Chinese Stars on dates surrounding both bands' SXSW performances. Then, again hit the road supporting Red Sparowes in April. Please see complete tour dates below.

Fang Island's self-titled debut album hit shelves on February 23rd via Sargent House amid a wealth of praise from press, with many writers declaring it one of the Best of 2010, just two months into the new year. Amazon.com is currently offering an exclusive MP3 album version for $5.99 with the bonus track, "Patterns On The Wall." A digital EP featuring the popular album track "Daisy" backed with Chris Keating of Yeasayer's remix of "Absolute Place" off their Sky Gardens EP preceded the full length in January.
