Texan symphonic pop collective Polyphonic Spree will march their Fragile Army, the band’s third LP out June 19, across North America this summer on a 26-date outing, kicking off with an appearance Memorial Day weekend at George, WA’s Sasquatch! Festival. From there, the band, now donning “streamline for the future” military-style uniforms sporting peace symbols, will play a few dates in Texas and hit New Orleans and Atlanta before weaving a line through the Eastern, Midwestern, and Western regions of the U.S. The outing will be capped with a Lollapalooza performance Aug. 4 in Chicago’s Grant Park.

Thanks to frontman Kyle Falconer’s on going immigration issues, possibly stemming from his recent conviction, Scot rockers the View have been forced to cancel their U.S. tour behind the May 8 release of their debut record, Hats Off to the Buskers. But for one lucky pair of stateside fans, this won’t pose a problem, for the View and their label Columbia will bring the U.S. to Scotland. Enter here, and you and a friend could be headed for Scotland’s T in the Park festival July 6-8 to catch the View play alongside Bright Eyes, Snow Patrol, the Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, and the Killers, among others.
