Zammuto will tour the United States with Explosions in the Sky in 2012.

Nick Zammuto, fresh off the recent dissolution of The Books, has turned our bummed-out frowns upside down with the promise of his new music project, appropriately named Zammuto. And when you’ve already found success in the music industry, your new project gets a fast track on the tour circuit: this Spring, they’ll hit the road for a series of tour dates opening with the inimitable Explosions in the Sky. Those dates last through April and will mostly span the West Coast, but New Yorkers get a chance to see Zammuto at the Ecstatic Music Festival on 2/23 (one week from today).
