Even as fans mourn the demise of sound collage pop duo The Books, they seem to have taken a real shine to Zammuto, the new band/solo project from former Bookster Nick Zammuto. The band’s self-titled debut album has earned high marks from everyone from Pitchfork to Paste, and they’ve been on the road for most of 2012, most recently opening for instrumental rockers Explosions in the Sky. Now they’ve got a whole slew of new fall tour dates, including their first headlining shows and a stint opening for Gotye. Yes, that Gotye, the dude behind the ginormous hit “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Are the Top 40 masses ready for bent prog-rock epics like “F U C-3PO“? Guess we’ll find out.

To give fans a taste of their live set, they’ve also released a free five-song live EP, recorded in Athens, Georgia during their tour with Explosions. You can preview it after the complete tour dates below, or go to Soundcloud to grab the free download.
