This past summer, Seattle-based artist Craft Spells, i.e. musician and songwriter Justin Vallesteros, released his sophomore album Nausea, the long awaited follow up to his 2011 critically acclaimed debut Idle Labor. We are happy to announce today, that he will be embarking on a North American tour at the end of February, his second in support of this album. Beginning at San Francisco’s Noise Pop Festival, the month long tour will see them playing 25 dates with support form The Billinda Butchers.
