Mates Of State Get Remixed, Prepare To Tour With Black Kids


On the heels of their inclusion in MAGNET’s Top 25 Albums Of 2008, Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel are getting ready to release a remix EP of tracks from Re-Arrange Us. The four-song Re-Arranged: Remixes Vol. 1 (guess there’s more of them coming) will be out this spring on the Barsuk label. Vol. 1 features remixes by the Mae Shi (“You Are Free”), RAC (“Now”), DJ Sega (“Help Help”) and Flosstradamus (“The Re-Arranger”). Around the same time, Mates Of State will be hitting the road (with children in tow, no doubt) on a “co-headlining” tour with Black Kids. Given MOS are playing last on 19 of the 23 dates, we tend to think that they are the headliners and didn’t want to hurt Black Kids’ feeling. (Being parents, Gardner and Hammel are good at dealing with Kids.) Tour dates after the jump.
