After the midwestern creeps and former XLR8Rcover stars of Salem shocked and awed the mass of music fans worldwide with their monolithic King Night LP, they’re now set to take that show on the road with a tour of North America in the latter half of March. The band’s trek starts at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, and ends at Branx in Portland, making select stops in Canada, Detroit, and a few West Coast and East Coast locales. Let’s all cross our fingers now in hopes that Salem’s infamous SXSW gig isn’t revisited at those performances. The dates for the tour are listed below.
