Mobius Band - Fall Tour, new album release info, "Hallie" MP3

Hailing from Brooklyn by way of Western Massachusetts, Mobius Band took me by surprise back in November '05 when I saw them at Mercury Lounge. What I saw then was a band full of copious amounts of potential. Out of nowhere (for me at least), here was a band busting at the seams with emotive, energetic yet listless, pop hooks, electro touches, and a big enough sound and stage presence to fill up arenas. No joke, I might not have said it at the time, but that was my impression. That this band could well be "the next Coldplay", or something along those lines. James mixed with Kid A Radiohead? How can I really say? I don't care much for Coldplay... but Mobius Band I loved. Ever since, I've been on the lookout for news from the Mobius Band camp.

In addition to prepping for the release of their second album, Heaven due out on Misra on October 2nd, the band has lined up an extensive tour hitting both the US and Canada. Below you can find the dates for their tour and a song from the new album. Head on over to Stereogum to check out another song from Heaven, and be sure to check out Mobius Band when they're in your neck of the woods.
