R.E.M. Tour 2008

At the risk of turning this blog into nothing but Obama and REM porn, comes the announcement straight from the band itself: REM is touring the US this summer.

Not only is this news awesome, but the cherry on top is the list of opening bands: Modest Mouse and The National.

I shit thee not. Rock.
