Band announce European tour dates for November in support of Volume X

This week, Trans Am released their tenth album, appropriately titled Volume X in the U.S., Japan and Australia - get hold of it at their label Thrill Jockey's website here. For UK and European fans, the record will be out on August 11 - but fear not, the Maryland trio haven't neglected us: today, they've announced a European tour, starting up in November, and marked the news with the video for 'I'll Never', a crystalline chunk of mirrorball melancholy, which includes some of the finest drinking of water committed to celluloid we've seen.
