Moonface cancels dates, Dan on new Preoccupations track, Operators add new dates to Euro Tour

Bunch of news to report. First one being that Spencer has cancelled his Moonface tour for November. He posted a long message on his Facebook page that said :

“At first, they were supposed to be Moonface & Siinai shows, in support of My Best Human Face, but then: Flights! Logistics! Work visas for all those beautiful Finns!
It just wasn’t working…
So then, it was going to be a new idea altogether, a fresh take on some almost as fresh tunes, a sort of… surprise? But then: schedules, bands, boooring stuff…
That wasn’t going to work either.
So now, I’m postponing the whole run until next year. Shucks. Right now I’m thinking March / April, but I’m not positive on the dates yet, so anyone who already bought a ticket will be reimbursed.
And at this point I really don’t know what incarnation of Moonface will be on stage: with Siinai, or as the… surprise? Or something altogether different. I honestly can’t say.
For now, I’ll just say I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t think it was necessary. I hate doing it though. I do.”

So here’s hoping we get more dates next year.
