Maps & Atlases will tour the US in 2012.

Maps & Atlases are whipping themselves through the festival circuit, booking an incredible 6 festival appearances in the month of March. The centerpiece is SXSW 2012, where they’ll be drumming up interest for the April 15th release of their new album, Beware and Be Grateful. Their smaller festival engagements include the of-course-it-exists Bro Fest 2012, which brings on-the-rise indie acts to Dallas, TX the day after SXSW ends.

In the coming days, M&A promise to announce a “major North American tour” starting in May, right after they wrap up some dates in Europe and the UK. We’ll keep you posted.
