Yacht will tour the United States in 2012.

Yacht has announced a North American tour in 2012. We had our last affair with these glittery fools at the Treasure Island Music Festival:

Last I saw, Yacht was Jona Bechtolt singing and kicking jams from his laptop, plus a neverending yelping/dancing ritual thrown in for good measure, at Bottom of the Hill about four years ago. While I thought he might be destined for stardom, I had no idea Claire Evans would swoop in and really transform this band into a next-level pop machine. Her bizarre Eurochic-via-Portland swagger nicely compliments Bechtolt’s freakishly consistent songwriting. Seriously, I think that man sold his soul to the devil in exchange for the ability to write pop hooks.

He may be doomed, but it makes for a hell of a show. Tickets are available to the tour dates below:
