Well, Of Montreal isn’t even from Canada so no big revelation they’re touring in the US. They’re actually from the awesome musical hotbed of Athens, Georgia (R.E.M., Neutral Milk Hotel, Widespread Panic, Drive By Truckers).

‘Paralytic Stalks’ is Of Montreal’s 11th album and first since 2010’s ‘False Priest.’ Of Montreal really broke out in 2007 not only for ‘Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer,’ but also infamously for a version of “Wraith Pinned to the Mist (And Other Games)” appearing in an Outback Commercial.

My heart was sad. But you can’t argue that they put on a great live show. Check out tickets here.
