Dour Percentage and European tour dates

After the 7-minute epic Wintered Debts that was shared with fans back in November, of Montreal has decided to release Dour Percentage as the first single off Paralytic Stalks. Pitchfork has the goods. A more conventional song (by of Montreal standards, anyway), it should be somewhat less confusing for the people who favor Hissing Fauna and False Priest over, say, Coquelicot and Skeletal Lamping. Unfortunately, the track doesn't come with a video, and it apparently won't be released as a single either. I'll wait until the tour starts and you start sending in reports of how elaborate it is, but there seems to be interesting budget choices being made in the oM camp these days.

Pitchfork also posted the European (+ Turkey and Israel) tour dates :

04-16 Helsinki, Finland - Tavastia
04-17 Oslo, Norway - Rockefeller

  1. I'm loving my pre-order digital version of Paralytic Stalks. When can I see the lyrics?? Please help! Lyrics for dummies is needed asap!!!!!! I'm really hopeful that my cassette will have liner note lyrics but I doubt it. The new stuff is sooo good! comment party! comment party!

  2. I'm working on the lyrics with the help of the Townhall, but we're still having arguments and doubts. I'll try to get my hands on an official lyrics sheet, too. :)
