British Sea Power: new album, live videos, massive US tour with The Rosebuds, Colourmusic, and 1900's

What happens when two of EAR FARM's most favorite bands play two shows in NYC together over a single weekend in May? Up to this point, one could only imagine; however, we'll get a chance to see for ourselves when British Sea Power and The Rosebuds return to New York TOGETHER to hit up Bowery Ballroom and the Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 10th and 11th respectively.

The fun doesn't begin and end there: British Sea Power have a whole slew of US dates lined up for 2008 and will be dropping their third LP (titled Do You Like Rock Music?) tomorrow. Full tour dates, an MP3, live video, and links to where you can stream the entire album, after the jump.
