MUSIC NEWS: Tegan and Sara to Join Katy Perry on Tour This Fall.

Big Tour news coming out of the Tegan and Sara camp. They are confirmed as direct support for the third leg of Katy Perry's North American tour starting September 9th in Vancouver and wrapping up in New Orleans on October 8th. In other big tour related announcements, Tegan and Sara will be a big part of Amnesty International's Bringing Human Rights Home benefit concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on February 5th with The Flaming Lips, Imagine Dragons, Lauryn Hill, Tegan and Sara, The Fray and more.
Tegan and Sara will be a part of two movies coming out in February. They have teamed up with The Lonely Island to sing the theme-song, "Everything Is Awesome", for the forthcoming The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures, opening in theaters February 7, 2014. Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), it stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.

There is a new song performed by Tegan and Sara in Universal Pictures' upcoming movie Endless Love, a romantic drama starring Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike) and Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) and directed by Shana Feste (Country Strong). The film hits theatres February 14th 2014. The previously unreleased track "Don't Find Another Love" is featured on an impressive indie soundtrack, which also features NONONO, The Bird and The Bee featuring Matt Berninger, Guards, Echosmith, and Tanlines.

This past year was a huge one for Canadian born twin sisters Tegan and Sara, with the release of the girls' seventh studio album, Heartthrob - which marked their highest first week charting position of all time. The band scored their first mainstream hit with "Closer" and circled the globe in support of Heartthrob, which included international and domestic headlining stints, a US tour with Fun. performances with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, and Katy Perry as well as multiple festival appearances along the way. They conquered TV - 2013 saw Tegan and Sara everywhere from Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (where they represented HRC), to ELLEN, the MTV Woodie Awards, 90210, and their first career appearance on The TODAY Show. As the year came to a close, the duo's effort was highly championed all-around, named #30 on Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2013" and #13 on Spin's "Top 50 Albums of 2013."  "Compulsive, sexy, and confident, the once-folky sister duo crafted a Top 40 transformation themselves with no Max Martin handiwork in sight, which makes Heartthrob's success feel downright subversive" raved Spin, who also slotted Heartthrob's first single, "Closer," in the #6 spot for "Songs of the Year."                
After a great run with "Closer," the first Tegan and Sara song to ever chart, let alone break into the top 20, at pop radio,  "I Was A Fool" is the next official single, impacting stations next month.

A full list of upcoming tour dates is below. They'll be cruising in March as part of Parahoy! and join Katy Perry on the latter leg of her tour through September to October.
