With his latest release Tip of The Sphere out earlier this year, Cass McCombs proved he could expand his sound while staying true to his core. Now with a new run of U.S. dates announced, McCombs has announced a new book Toy Fables due in October, and it should be as exemplary as his music.
The book will be of poetry and should feature some well written verse alongside illustrations by McCombs as well. The centralized theme is memory, and features unnamed narrators that should delight any fan and new reader as well. The new run of U.S. tour dates are below.
