, Staff

Manchester Orchestra and Cage The Elephant will hit the road this spring for a co-headlining tour. The pair of rock bands will make their way to Massachusetts for a show at Boston’s House of Blues on Tuesday, May 10. Tickets for the show are now on sale through LiveNation for $21 and $31. O’Brother has been tapped to open the show.

The Boston show will serve as a celebration for Manchester Orchestra after their forthcoming release, Simple Math, hits stores the same day. The album, the Atlanta rockers’ third studio effort, was recorded with producer Dan Hannon who also produced the band’s first album (2006’s I’m Like a Virgin Losing a Child) and co-produced their second (2009’s Mean Everything to Nothing). Fans looking for a taste of the new material can download the title track through the band’s official website for free.

Cage The Elephant are backing on the road to support their second album, Thank You Happy Birthday. Released in January, it’s the band’s sophomore album and highly anticipated follow-up to their 2009 self-titled debut. Thank You Happy Birthday features lead single “Shake Me Down”, which has hit #1 on both the Billboard Alternative and Rock songs charts.

Following the Boston show, Manchester Orchestra will play a show on their own at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island on Friday, May 13. Tickets for the show are now on sale through e-tix.com for $16.50. An Horse will open the show.
