Not that these guys were necessarily underground before, but 2011 is sure to be an even bigger year for the Smith Westerns. Currently on tour with MGMT in Europe, the group returns to conquer their homeland in the early months of next year, including a stop at the Empty Bottle on Saturday, February 26th. Dye it Blonde, the follow up to their widely acclaimed eponymous debut, will be released January 18th on Fat Possum. To hold us over till then, the group released a video for first single "Weekend," which you can watch below. Think you know Chicago? Tell us where the video was shot in the comments.
