Electro-metal rockers Mindless Self Indulgence [ tickets ] are in the midst of a world tour to support their forthcoming album, "If," and they'll kick off the North American leg later this month.
The New York-based band has already trekked though Australia, New Zealand and Japan this year, and is currently in Europe. The group is set to launch US and Canadian dates April 29 in Cleveland, OH, and visit clubs and theaters from coast to coast through June. The co-ed act will also appear at the May 3 Bamboozle festival in East Rutherford, NJ.
Special guest The Birthday Massacre will join MSI on the road, and a variety of other bands will open. North American dates are listed below and those overseas can be found at MSI's website, along with details about which bands appear on each date.
MSI's new single, "Never Wanted to Dance," is currently holding steady at the top of Billboard's Hot Singles Sales Chart. The song is off the new album, "If," which is expected to hit stores April 29. The set will be released in three different formats: standard and deluxe versions, and a double-vinyl version. Fans can preview another new track, "Mastermind," at MSI's MySpace page.
"If" follows 2005's "You'll Rebel to Anything," which broke into The Billboard 200 and snagged the No. 1 spot on the magazine's Top Heatseekers chart. Last summer, Mindless Self Indulgence also put out its first DVD, "Our Pain, Your Gain," which captures a three-night performance at New York City's Webster Hall.
