The Cars Announce NA Tour Dates In Support Of May 10th Release “Move Like This”

With their new album Move Like This is set to be releaseed on May 10th, The Cars have announced an initial string of concerts across North America, due to begin on the same date at Seattle’s Showbox SoDo.  The set list will draw from the band’s career and include songs from  Move Like This as well.

On the band’s reunion:
The project’s genesis came in the fall of 2009 as Ric Ocasek considered how to proceed with his latest batch of songs. He realized that his best option was the three players with whom he had the most symbiotic relationship. Ocasek reached out to Hawkes, Easton, and Robinson, each of who were excited at the opportunity to play together again. “It totally clicked immediately,” Ocasek says. “Everybody got right into it, as if we had never stopped playing. After two days I thought, ‘Oh yeah, this is going to be cool.'”

Even as the band fell naturally back into rhythm, Hawkes says, “We tried hard to keep it from just being a nostalgia thing. We definitely wanted to bring a modern slant to it.”
