191108_firstaidkitSöderberg sisters to tour with Slow Club and Fanfarlo 

The build up to Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit’s anxiously awaited full-length debut (due early 2010) begins in earnest next month as they embark on an 18-date tour ahead of the release of the album’s first single ‘Hard Believer’ on October 5th through Wichita Recordings. Their first new original material since the enchanting Drunken Trees EP, ‘Hard Believer’ is described as “a masterly assured step forwards” for Klara and Johanna, and will be released on 7″ vinyl and as a digital download.

The first leg of their autumn tour will see them supporting Slow Club, while the second leg, billed as ‘The Smorgastour’, is in cahoots with Fanfarlo, whose lead singer Simon is a fellow Swede. First though, the sisters will put in an appearance at the Electric Picnic and End Of The Road festivals. Full list of dates below.
