The Satin Peaches, "Motor City’s new favorite sons" (at least that's what Britain's New Musical Express recently dubbed them), just nabbed the opening slot on the upcoming tour by the great Alejandro Escovedo (check out his recent excellent Tony Visconti-produced Real Animal CD, if you haven't already!).

The Peaches recently released Morning Maid, a mini-album that was only available in the U.K., which led to a spot on the recent NME Freshers Tour as well as rave reviews like this one in the NME: “Forget the greased-up garage rock and proto-punk of the Stooges and the White Stripes, the Satin Peaches are Motor City’s new favourite sons."

Ironically, however, this trek won't be bringing the lads or Escovedo to the Motor City. The closest they'll get is Chicago and Cleveland, after opening the tour in Minneapolis on October 15th. The tour itinerary is below, as is the band's latest video. Congratulations, gents!
