Cult rockers SILVER JEWS have announced their first ever tour, 16 years after they formed.

The critically acclaimed US band, fronted by DAVID BERMAN with a rotating line-up sometimes including former Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus, head out on a 10-date trek of America's east coast in March (05).

The touring line-up has yet to be confirmed but will feature Berman and his wife CASSIE BERMAN.
