Crafty D.C. synth rockers Trans Am have announced a nationwide tour behind the Feb. 20 release of Sex Change, the band’s eighth album on the Chicago based Thrill Jockey label. With 23 stops scheduled, the notoriously cliche and humorous threesome will kick off the tour Feb. 22 in Buffalo, NY, take a breather for the month of March and embark west in April before capping off in Philadelphia on May 4. Trans Am fans looking to get their mitts on presale tickets can do so through Ducat King and subsequently qualify to purchase Trans Am’s newest album Sex Change for $8.
