After an absence from the road, indie rock outfit Pinback unveiled plans for an early fall outing on the tour circuit, slated to start September 16 in Tuscon, AZ, and wrap up October 22 in San Diego, CA. The tour features performances at music halls and clubs across the United States, and just one gig north of the border on October 7 in Toronto, ON.

Appropriately for the early-fall agenda, the 29-date tour supports Pinback’s 2007 release “Autumn of the Seraphs.” The album, which reached No. 69 on U.S. charts, is a follow-up to 2004’s similarly seasonal “Summer in Abaddon.”

On Pinback’s official Web site, the group described its sound as “buoyant and lively at times, melancholy and dark at others.” However, compared to earlier efforts, the 2007 album was “more dynamic and aggressive.”

Pinback formed in 1998 in San Diego, CA, and released their self-titled debut album the following year. The band is mainly comprised of the multi-instrumentalists Rob Crow and Zach Smith, although more than 10 musicians have performed with the group over the years, including two rotating drummers.

Over the past decade, the band has remained busy, though Pinback only has four full-length studio albums to its name. The group also released two studio EPs, five tour EPs and an album of rarities, called “Nautical Antiques.”
