The Pink Spiders announce extensive U.S tour, including a date with the Pretenders. Sweat it Out releases September 23.

Hell, these dates for the power-pop group aren't even on their myspace yet! There are, however, new songs there. Oh yea, duh, of course i'm jealous about the Pretenders gig. September 23 sees the release of the next album Sweat It Out. Prior to the album release, the band is selling pre-order "survival" packs that contain the album along with a T-shirt, 5-Song digital EP, sunglasses and a condom. As i wrote in the bio at allmusic.com, the Nashville band signed to Geffen for Teenage Graffiti, which was produced by the one and only Ric Ocasek. A major wasn't the place for them and sure enough, Sweat it Out will get issued via Adrenaline Music Group.
