Today, Steve Taylor announced to his Kickstarter campaign backers that Peter Furler Band and Steve Taylor and the Perfect Foil will Co-Headline a special Spring Tour, called The Perfect Tour. Both bands are releasing new albums this spring as well, starting with Peter Furler Band's Sun and Shield on March 11 and Steve Taylor and the Perfect Foil's to follow sometime in April. The Spring tour will launch April 26 and run until May 25.

Earlier today, the Jesusfreakhideout.com staff also announced their 8th annual "Highlighting" picks in which they select their most anticipated projects of the new year, and both bands placed high on the list. Click here to check out the staff's top 15 picks from January 1 to the end of June.

Below is Taylor's full announcement:

As we've been recording The Perfect Foil album, we've simultaneously been planning The Perfect Tour. It's tricky business trying to plot a tour that plays the maximum number of cities while losing the minimum number of shirts. Do we take an opening act? Can we find decent venues? Will the restrooms be hygienic?

And then, a few days ago, the so-obvious-why-didn't-we-think-of-it-sooner solution appeared. Late last year, the four of us wrapped production on Peter Furler Band's incredible new album - Sun and Shield - which will be released in March and includes nine tracks Peter and I co-wrote that I believe to be his best collection of songs since the glory days of Take Me To Your Leader.

What if...

It gives us great joy to announce that Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil will be co-headlining this spring's tour with Peter Furler Band!

No, this is not a misprint. Yes, you may pick yourself off the floor. For diehard Steve Taylor fans, you get to hear an additional set of hit songs written by Furler/Taylor for both Newsboys and Peter's amazing new album Sun and Shield! And for diehard Peter Furler fans, you get to see Peter both Step Up To The Microphone AND sit behind a non-spinning drum kit!

And now for your frequently asked questions...

What are the dates? We'll be on tour from April 26th thru May 25th, with possible additional dates added in the fall.

Will both bands do full sets? Yes.

What types of venues will you be playing? Our preference is to play "neutral venues" - clubs and concert halls - with a maximum capacity of 350-1,000. (We have nothing against church sanctuaries, but they're typically better suited to praying than playing.)

Can I help? Yes. If you know (or are) a concert promoter, contact our longtime friend/agent Scott Huie at: booking[at]h2oaa.com

Is my "golden ticket backstage pass" still valid? It's not only still valid, but its MVI (memorabilia value index) just increased by 60%.

Will this be the most glorious post-Arctic-Vortex Concert Of The Year? Yes
