Austin indie rockers Spoon have announced their first Nashville date in seven years, set to take place May 8 at Marathon Music Works. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, March 19, at 10 a.m. right here, and will run for $30 in advance or $35 the day of the show. Support has yet to be announced, and, per usual, the event is 18+. This is turning into a crazy spring for shows, huh?
Spoon are expected to release their eighth studio album, a followup to 2010’s Transference, sometime this year. You can check out a 30-second preview after the jump! During the group’s unusually long break between albums, frontman Britt Daniel found success with new project Divine Fits, drummer Jim Eno continued on his prolific stint as a producer, including Nashville’s own Turbo Fruits’ latest, Butter, bassist Rob Pope found renewed success with his former band, The Get Up Kids, and multi-instrumentalist Eric Harvey released a new solo album, Lake Disappointment.
