Dave Longstreth just sent an E-mail to Dirty Projectors’ mailing list, sharing the following details about their month-long fall tour…

“We’re going to pack about 18 nights’ worth of songs into our rucksacks and just plan on letting a few go in every city. The songs will be from phylum Orca, genus Mount Wittenberg; genus Bitte; various specimens of the Rise Above family, maybe some from the New Attitude kingdom, and hopefully a few other more unclassifiable ones … hopefully they’ll fly up into the trees and indigenize alright, like those parrots who build nests on top of phone poles in your old babysitter’s neighborhood.”

He went on to say that the band’s got two new releases on tap. First up: an expanded two-disc edition of Bitte Orca that includes all of the album’s B-sides and a special acoustic set that was captured at Other Music last year. It arrives on 9/21 and can be pre-ordered here. A week later, Other Music will release a limited white label vinyl pressing of their five tracks. You can pre-order one (or two, which is the limit) of 500 copies now.
