Tortoise add European tour dates


Tortoise have added six dates to their European tour.

They recently wrapped up the first run of shows in support of latest album The Catastrophist – and they’ll head back out on the road later this week across North America.

And they’ve added further shows in Europe, with extra performances scheduled this summer in Germany, Poland, the Netherlands and the UK.

To mark the announcement, Tortoise have released a live video for their track Ox Duke from The Catastrophist, which was issued earlier this year via Thrill Jockey.

The band previously released a stream for album track Shake Hands With Danger.
