Hercules and Love Affair’s Blue Songs gets U.S. release

on May 20, 2011, 3:55pm

Hercule and Love Affair released their sophomore LP, Blue Songs, in the U.K. this past January. Some seven months later, fans across the Atlantic will finally get their hands on a physical copy when Moshi Moshi gives the 11-track effort its proper U.S. release. And as an incentive for the extra long wait, the U.S version will include three additional bonus tracks plus a second disc featuring seven remixes.

The Andy Butler-led outfit will support the release with a series of appearances at the inaugural edition of Identity. The band will hitch up with the traveling festival beginning August 18th in Bristow, VA and will continue on for dates in Camden, NJ, Mansfield, MA, Atlanta, GA, Tampa, FL, and Dallas, TX, among other cities.
