Ohbijou- add tour dates, readying new album

Toronto, Ontario's Ohbijou have just announced a new set of tour dates that will be bringing the band across Canada as well as their first extensive jaunt into the US this fall. Ohbijou just recently made their U.S. debut in May 2008, with two performances in NYC. On this tour the group will head out with, The Acorn, who they share a new 12" split-single. The 12" includes both bands covering a track of the other, and a new original song by each.
The band has recently been in studio working on their new sophomore full-length, which is expected to come out in early 2009.
Right now you can preview a new track "Black Ice", which is up on the bands myspace.
