Tegan & Sara announce remix album, tour with Paramore

Don’t you miss the days of remix albums? Yeah, me neither. But Tegan and Sara have a treat for you if you are feeling nostalgic for hearing the same song repeated multiple times on the same album, often times with just subtle differences punctuated with an occasional track of unrecognizable noise and if you are very lucky, one version that stands-up-to or surpasses the original. Sure club versions are a necessary evil, but ten are not.

Like it or not, Pitchfork reports the always endearing Quinn sisters will release Alligator, an iTunes-only remix album of their single “Alligator”. Out March 30th, the collection features 17(!?) versions of the song. You know, because 18 would have been overkill. At least the band has a sense of humor about it all, with the pair noting, (how does a duo get quoted as one?) “If you’ve ever fantasized about having a dance party with 17 versions of the same song… watch out, this is your dream come true.” Seriously, you could really fuck with some people on a road trip with this one.

Taking part in the festivities, which will also include an eventual vinyl release, are Toro Y Moi, Ra Ra Riot, Holy Fuck, Four Tet, and professional badass Dave Sitek. And for the “Alligator” completest, the original demo recording will be the answer to your prayers.

Not helping their cred whatsoever, Tegan & Sara also have a lengthy tour this summer as support for Paramore, which will also include two yet to be announced bands. I bet they will be of high quality. Seriously, do you think they let just anyone on the “Honda Civic Tour”? Spin reports that the pre-sale tickets will be available to members of Paramore’s fan club (judges you) beginning at 3 P.M. on March 22nd. So, you’re late! Additional pre-sale tickets will be available via the tour’s official site starting on March 23rd. If you buy tickets like a normal human being, you can get them on March 27th via Ticketmaster.com. Now, someone kidnap these girls and show them those scared straight videos.
