The Weepies Announce U.S. Tour Dates, New Album Be My Thrill Aug. 31

The Weepies have announced fall tour dates in support of their forthcoming album Be My Thrill, which is due in stores Aug. 31.

The duo – Deb Talan and Steve Tannen — has been on tour this summer as part of Lilith Fair, the female-oriented festival organized by Sarah McLachlan but will now head out on their own beginning on the West Coast in October.  They’ll make their way through the Midwest and northeast before wrapping up in Phoenix before Thanksgiving. 

Talan and Tannen had been off the road for four years because their son was born just as they were completing Hideaway in 2008.  With Be My Thrill, they are returning to live performances and have plenty of songs to play for audiences across the US.

The first single from the album, “I Was Made For Sunny Days” is available for and can be purchased from iTunes and other digital retail outlets.
