Belle and Sebastian to play Boston with Yo La Tengo

, Staff

Belle and Sebastian have revealed plans to return to the road this summer for a tour in support of their forthcoming album, The Third Eye Centre. The indie rock veterans will join forces with special guests Yo La Tengo for a concert at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion on Tuesday, July 9. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $40, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

The Third Eye Centre, a compilation of Belle and Sebastian rarities and Bā€sides from the past decade, is expected to be released in June. Following their tour commitments, the Scottish rockers intend to return to the studio to begin recording their ninth studio album and first release of all new material since 2010’s Belle and Sebastian Write About Love.

Pitchfork recently released a new documentary about the band’s 1996 album, If You’re Feeling Sinister. As part of their “Pitchfork Classic” series, the film includes interviews with past and present band members along with footage from the band’s early years. To watch the film, go here.

Yo La Tengo, who recently delivered a sold-out show at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club, will be touring in support of their brand new album, Fade. The New Jersey-based rocker’s thirteenth studio effort and follow-up to 2009’s Popular Songs, was released in January. After working with producer Roger Moutenot for two decades, the band turned to John McEntire to produce Fade.
