Matthew Dear and his Big Hands are touring the US and Canada here this October.

Following numerous headline slots at European festivals over the summer including Sonar, Pukkelpop and Audioriver, Matthew Dear hits the road this month with his bass player and drummer for a nineteen-date tour of North America. But don't go turning up at the clubs. The tour will stop off at rough-and-tumble venues such as Rock n' Roll Hotel, Triple Rock and err, Grog Shop. Classy stuff.
