[video] Handsome Furs Interview & Tour

The band that never stops

So the Handsome Furs are concluding the US leg of their Sound Kapital tour before hopping across the pond to embark on a European invasion. Notably (and sadly because I'm not there), Boeckner and Perry will be making a stop at Neumos in Seattle this Saturday (September 10). Handsome Furs never disappoint with their amazingly energetic live shows. Don't miss it.

Also, check out the video interview above from L Mag TV. It brings me happiness to see that these insanely talented musicians are also genuinely cool people - it's really obvious from the video. Watch the clip and learn how they formed the band, how their early dating involved music-making dates, how their music is ever-evolving, and how culture shock can be a "hilarious bummer".

So where will these world travelers tour next? Apparently their last show this tour is currently in Beruit, Lebanon, but they hint at the end of video on the possibility of traveling to Jordan and Iran. Maybe we'll even get to see a sequel to CNN's Handsome Furs: Indie Asia!

Check it out, and don't miss them if you live in the Pacific Northwest.
