Cursive will tour the United States in 2012.

Cursive have expanded on their previously announced tour dates in 2012. They’ll be on the West Coast til the end of February, with the added leg accounting for two months on the East Coast. The tour is in support of I Am Gemini, a concept album due out on February 21st, 2012:

I Am Gemini is the surreal and powerful musical tale of Cassius and Pollock, twin brothers separated at birth.  One good and one evil, their unexpected reunion in a house that is not a home ignites a classic struggle for the soul, played out with a cast of supporting characters that includes a chorus of angels and devils, and twin sisters conjoined at the head.
