Barsuk Records is excited to release Maps & Atlases‘ new video for “Fever,” off their latest album Beware & Be Grateful. NPR premiered the video as part of their “First Watch” series, and it is available for posting. The clip, which further develops the story of an anonymous man introduced in their album trailer video, was directed by guitarist Erin Elders and produced by drummer Chris Hainey.

Maps & Atlases, who just began a European tour, is thrilled to announce a spring US tour. The tour begins April 16th at The Aquarium in Fargo and wraps up on May 9 at the Waiting Room in Omaha. Full tour dates, including the current European trek, are below.

Beware & Be Grateful – which follows the Chicago-based band’s acclaimed 2010 debut, Perch Patchwork – was recorded last year in a series of week-long sessions at Omaha’s ARC Studios with producer Jason Cupp (Nurses, Good Old War) once again behind the board.

Since their formation in 2004, Maps & Atlases have captured the indie imagination with their extraordinarily artful amalgamation of polyrhythmic beats, elaborate melodies, and post-rock ingenuity. The band toured hard from the get-go, honing their kinetic time signatures and inventive energy through countless live shows as both headliner and alongside such artists as Broken Bells, Frightened Rabbit, Circa Survive, Cults, and RX Bandits.
