TEGAN and SARA return to the U.S. for their massive summer tour which begins this week as part of the Honda Civic Tour with Paramore, New Found Glory and Kadawatha. In addition, Tegan and Sara will play a one-off date as part of Lilith Fair along with a handful of headline dates which equals a great summer for T & S fans. To make things even more exciting, a brand new video clip for "On Directing" from SAINTHOOD will premiere starting today at Noon PST / 3:00pm EST only on Alloy Media's Teen.com/music for 24 hours exclusively. The clip was directed by Angela Kendall, whose previous work also includes the "Call it Off" and "Speak Slow" clips, and was filmed in Vancouver, BC. Don't miss it!
As previously announced, a special 2010 Summer Tour EP featuring tracks from each of the bands on the Honda Civic Tour is currently available online through the iTunes Store. http://itunes.apple.com/us/preorder/2010-summer-tour-ep/id382323991
Tegan explains their two EP tracks: "Sheets" - "Sara and I recorded Sheets during the recording sessions for Sainthood last spring. This track was one of our favourites but we couldn't fit it on the record. It's a true Sainthood B-SIDE! Sara and I wrote it together. It's only the second official T+S collaboration ever released ("Paperback Head" being the other)." "Back In Your Head" - "Obviously everyone has heard the album version or some remix version but this is a true acoustic version of the song with just Sara and I performing together. The recording is from our latest tour to Australia and we love it!"
A limited physical edition of the EP will be distributed nationally at Hot Topic stores beginning Aug 10, through Sep 26 only, so don't delay.

Paramore - "Ignorance (live)" & "My Heart (live)"
