have been touring since the Oct. 7 release of their sophomore album, Such Fun, which featured cover art courtesy our favorite '80s TV-art instructor, Bob Ross. The band has just announced that the fun will continue in 2009, with a handful of concert dates confirmed (below) and more to come. The Raleigh-based sextet will be joined on tour by Jessica Lea Mayfield and What Laura Says (also on the Terpsikhore label). Keep an eye on Annuals' MySpace for tour updates; also, click here to see the music video of "Confessor," from Such Fun.
