Northern State goes on tour

Northern State set out this Summer on a whirlwind tour of Canada & Scandinavia! They will be celebrating their much anticipated third release “Can I Keep This Pen” out on Ipecac Recordings, Aug 28th. In honor of this highly festive occasion, Northern State will tour with Tegan & Sara on all their Canadian Dates and play the Peace & Love Festival in Sweden along with two other amazing shows. Upon returning to the US, the ladies will round out the middle of the Summer with some Cat Empire dates. But it doesn’t stop here! Watch this space for record release shows in August and a very special Fall US Tour.
Finally free of the Columbia/SONY machine, Northern State teamed up with producer Chuck Brody of Shitake Monkey (Wu Tang Clan, Yoko Ono etc.) and Adrock from the Beastie Boys and recorded an album for Ipecac Recordings. They pushed the limits in terms of what Northern State can sound like, with their classic old school hip hop sound weaving its way through a new electro-rock current. The ladies did an unprecedented amount of singing and were fortunate enough to have some talented friends like Mr. Murray Hill, Kaki King, and Katie Cassidy stop by and play on the album. When it was finished, they named it “Can I Keep This Pen?”
