Divine Fits played a couple of dates around the time A Thing Called Divine Fits was released and if you missed out, fret no more, as Divine Fits have announced a fall tour.
Divine Fits have been labeled a supergroup but that’s sort of unfair. Sure it has Britt Daniel (Spoon), Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs) and Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks) but Divine Fits is more than just the sum of their collective success. With Divine Fits, Daniel, Boeckner and Brown have created a viable band that successfully navigates new territory for all members involved.
There are elements of each member’s more famous projects, naturally, but the band, and the album, deserve a listen independent of the past. The album has received plenty of praise and is insanely catch and a very rewarding listening experience. Standouts like “Would That Not Be Nice,” the cover of “Shivers” or “Like Ice Cream” prove the band is more than a side project.
Add to it the great stage presence of Boeckner and Daniel and you have a recipe for a great night of live music. If Divine Fits come to your town, you should catch them. The tour begins on October 16 in Rhode Island and dates include a stop at Webster Hall on October 21. Even better, Cold Cave will support on select dates for the band. All dates below.
