The Rosebuds to tour on Life Like

The term Team Love might already be claimed by Conor Oberst's record label, but it's also pretty applicable to describe bands whose members' musicianship and personal lives are delightfully compossible. The Rosebuds' Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp are, yes, a couple (see similar inclinations in Mates of State, KaiserCartel, Quasi, The Handsome Family) whose fourth album, Life Like, comes this Oct. 7 from Merge Records. They're also a two-headed tour-machine whose fall will include as much nuzzling on the open road as it will, well, nuzzling on the stages played along that road.
