Handsome Furs Love Asia


In September Handsome Furs embarked on their first tour of Asia. They played 5 countries in 8 days and documented their entire trip in video and photos. The band have graciously shared with us photos from each city they played.

Check the brand new Handsome Furs Asia Tour Diary page to see photos from Tianjin and Beijing, China. More photos from the rest of their tour of Asia will be added this week.

The videos they took are part of a new series of ‘mini-documentaries’ on CNN.com:

CNN.com will also feature a series, “The Handsome Furs Tour Asia.” Armed with two Flip cams, this indie rock duo husband and wife team of Dan Boeckner and Alexei Cox Perry documented their Asian tour first hand as they visited China, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand. The Asian tour featured in the series is in support of their second record, Face Control, which got an 8 out of 10 from indie tastemakers, Pitchfork.com and other critical acclaim. These self-described travel nerds share the fun, excitement and drama of visiting new places, meeting new people and testing new foods. Boeckner is also a member of indie rock break out band Wolf Parade.

No word yet as to when the videos will surface, but we promise to post here as soon as they do. As always we thank Dan and Alexei for everything. Handsome Furs are currently on tour, forever.
