Beloved guitar-rock heroes Built to Spill have confirmed new dates for their February 2016 tour, which includes two shows at Slim’s in San Francisco and three at The Echo in Los Angeles.

Built to Spill have been touring in support of their current album Untethered Moon, which was released last April by Warner Bros. Records. Yet again, Doug Martsch & company have created a melodically rich song cycle that weaves memorable guitar textures with thoughtfully crafted lyrical passages open to the listener’s own interpretation. The press embraced the album with open arms and ears:

“Built To Spill are the AC/DC of indie rock. The album consistently is a testament to Martsche’s perfectionism – and for that, we salute him.” – Rolling Stone

Untethered Moon is a record flush with blustery guitar passages, hooks and heart…chugging ramblers with psych moves and serpentine melodies around every corner…towering shards of incendiary guitar.” – Associated Press

“Assured songwriting and richly rendered freakouts.” – Alternative Press

Untethered Moon was produced by Martsch and Sam Coomes (from the band Quasi) and recorded entirely with Martsch playing all guitars along with new band members, Steve Gere (drums) and Jason Albertini (bass).
