Idle Warship will tour the United States in 2012.

Idle Warship will tour the United States in 2012. The tandem of Talib Kweli and Res will play a handful of shows in January and February, including two at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in San Francisco, famous for hosting genre-defying current acts among the greats of decades past. Kweli and Res pair their hip hop and soul backgrounds, respectively, to create a tandem that is greater than the sum of its parts. Watch the video for “Laser Beams” below:
