Ra Ra Riot Gearing Up For The Shins Tour

Ra Ra RiotRa Ra Riot and the Shins will both be here in Boston this May for Boston Calling, but Ra Ra Riot announced that they will be opening for the Shins on a string of dates before and following the festival. It has also been announced that Ra Ra Riot will headline three shows with Cleveland’s Lighthouse And The Whaler opening. Lighthouse And The Whaler share a similar sound to Ra Ra Riot and will be sharing the shows around their own, The Midwest.

This spring into summer will bring Ra Ra Riot multiple festivals and headline shows to perform their latest, Beta Love, but they also have Record Store Day to look forward to. The band will release 1,000 limited edition copies of a 10-inch, The Binary Mind. The Record Store Day release will offer three demos of songs found on Beta Love and two unreleased tracks, “The Binary Mind” and “All I Fear”. Both gives a little heavier and more of a pop feel than the sounds of the band’s The Rhumb Line. As their first recordings without cellist, Alexandra Lawn, Ra Ra Riot has tried to define a new sound.
