The tour in support of the Loma Vista Recordings album began March 28 in Seattle, WA and runs through May 15 at Le Grand Rex in Paris, France.

"The Last Shadow Puppets were looking for an iconic sound for their new record," commented Grammy Award-winning engineer/mixer/producer Ross Hogarth. "Producer James Ford and masterful string arranger Owen Pallett desired sonic landscapes harkening back to 60s and 70s retro with some avant garde thrown in. A studio like United Studio B has such a definable sound with the addition of its live chambers and echo plates. It gives an engineer the raw tools to deliver that vision to a project like this. I was extremely impressed with the depth of feel and musical intuition that Miles (Kane), Alex (Turner) and James (Ford) have as writers and artists.
