THE VIRGINS TOUR DATES HERE

thevirgins.jpgAtlantic recording group The Virgins have announced dates for their upcoming tour with the Black Kids, kicking off September 19th in Jacksonville, FL.  

The Virgins released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album on June 3rd.   Produced by S*A*M* and Sluggo, the album received 4 stars from Rolling Stone, while Spin Magazine hailed, ”The Virgins have had the kind of out-of-thin ether rise that causes bloggers to gush and their peers to curse,” and Alternative Press named them one of the “100 Bands You Need to Know.”

The band’s first single ”Rich Girls,” debuted at #3 on the FMQB Specialty Chart and was Sprint’s 9th Most Downloaded Song for the week of June 3rd.   In addition, The Virgins just released the first video for the track “Private Affair.”   The video, which makes its MySpace.com premiere today, is an homage to the Robin Byrd-style cable access shows we all know.
