Hooray For Earth Announce Album Release Date and Tour

To follow up on their debut LP, Momo, Hooray For Earth will officially be releasing their full-length album, True Loves, on May 3rd, 2011 on Dovecote Records. The album is mainly the result of band leader Noel Heroux’s work, who wrote, recorded and produced 90% of the material it contains, with the other members of the band coming in to perfect their parts during a few sessions.

But before you can own True Loves, you can catch Hooray For Earth on tour this month with The Concretes. They’ll also be on the road later, in March, where they will be appearing at Austin’s South By South West Festival in between their shows with A Place To Bury Strangers. Check below for the exact dates.
