Sunderland, England’s Field Music are set to return to North America in 2010 in support of their new double album, Field Music (Measure), out February 16, 2010 on Memphis Industries.  Confirmed dates are below, and more West Coast dates will be confirmed shortly.

After their three-year break, Field Music will return with a new 20-track double album on February 16th, 2010. With lineup still centered around brothers and co-frontmen Peter and David Brewis, the band now also includes Kev Dosdale (guitar and keys) and Ian Black (bass).

Field Music have so far released two acclaimed albums, 2006′s self-titled debut and 2007′s Tones of Town, both released on Memphis Industries/Revolver. Shortly after the release of the Tones of Town album, Peter and David called time on the band playing their last show with Deerhoof in Leeds, in May 2007.

The brothers sited the stifling “indie band” format as the main reason for putting “Field Music as a band” on hiatus and subsequently began writing music separately at their 8 Music studio.
2008 saw the release of two solo albums – David’s guitar-heavy Sea From Shore album, under the name School of Language, and Peter’s highly acclaimed murder mystery-themed Linn Drum, Fairlight and marimba release, The Week That Was.

After lugging their marimba around the world for a year as The Week That Was, the brothers started writing and recording together in early 2009 with the intention of releasing the results under the name Field Music.
