The Mates of State are back on the road (in a limited way) and they’ll be playing a few shows in San Francisco and then embarking a mini-tour of the Northeast which will bring them to the Bell House on Feb 21, 2010 (Buy Tickets). Cryptically, the blog post below hints at the release of a new album in 2010. More specifically, they’ve been talking about working on some new songs and a new “covers” album (with the venerable Peter Katis) in their Twitter feed.
