The Builders and the Butchers Team Up with Amanda Palmer For Joint Tour

Builders And they're off! Well, not just yet, but come mid-November, the Builders and the Butchers will embark on a just announced 20-date strong tour in support of Amanda Palmer. Yes, the Dresden Dolls' female half is taking off on a winter jaunt across the US to promote solo offering Who Killed Amanda Palmer and she's bringing 2008's Best New Band with her. Kicking off in Nashville, the tour covers a good portion of the country and will roll through Portland on the 12th of December as the pair stop by the Wonder Ballroom. Who do you think will elicit the most cheers at that show? In other B&B news, still no definitive word on the band's Chris Funk-assisted second record, but we are waiting with bated breath. If they ever feel like leaking something to the world, we're always in need of a "Cut of the Day." Hint, hint. Here's the full list of dates:
