This news will probably come as no surprise to those who were paying attention last summer when HEALTH sang the praises of Pictureplane in Pitchfork: Travis Egedy, who makes music under the Pictureplane moniker, has been picked up by Lovepump United. The New York-based imprint, which has also issued platters by HEALTH, is slated to release Pictureplane's Trance Doll 7-inch on Tuesday, March 10. A week later, Pictureplane will hit the road with HEALTH for a dozen dates, including a stop in Austin during South by Southwest. The full dates are posted after the jump along with a crazy, nearly unintelligible video of Egedy interviewing Galaxy Face. Catch Egedy spinning a DJ set this weekend at Rhinoceropolis.
