We Were Promised Jetpacks will return in 2014 with E Rey – Live in Philadelphia, a live album that was recorded in Philly’s Union Transfer venue. Due February 25 via FatCat, the upcoming LP follows WWPJ’s second studio album, 2011’s In the Pit of the Stomach. In preparation, the Edinburgh outfit has released a grainy trailer for E Rey, a 75-second clip that cobbles together footage of the band onstage and on the road. Watch it above.

We Were Promised Jetpacks have also announced U.S. tour dates to accompany the live record. The trek kicks off at the El Rey in Los Angeles (not to be confused with E Rey – Live in Philadelphia) on February 21 and ends on March 15 at next year’s South By Southwest showcase. Find details below.
