Kurt Vile Announces May UK 2011 Shows

On March 7th, Philadelphian troubadour Kurt Vile releases his latest album, Smoke Ring For My Halo, via Matador Records. The follow-up to 2009's Childish Prodigy - a record so beloved in certain circles that Uncut magazine placed it in their Top 50 Albums of the Decade list - will be the former War On Drugs guitarist's fourth full-length and was recorded with John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.), aided by an illustrious cast of musicians including his touring band The Violators (featuring members of War On Drugs).
