Back in the spring, we were very excited to hear that Philly’s Kurt Vile and Melbourne’s Courtney Barnett recorded a collaborative album, and were taking it on tour together.

Today, thanks to a new interview in Rolling Stone, we have some details on the record.It will be called Lotta Sea Lice, it features original songs called “Over Everything” and “Continental Breakfast” as well as a few cover songs. KV and CB will try their hand at Belly’s “Untogether” as well as a song by Barnett’s wife Jen Cloher, “Fear Is Like a Forest,” and a rendition of Vile’s “Peeping Tomboy” with Barnett on lead vocals.

Their live band — which, as Vile said back in June, is “a cookin’ band and an intercontinental country duo for the ages-minus the country” — will be called The Sea Lice, and includes Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Rob Laakso (The Violators, The Swirlies, Mice Parade) and Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin and touring member of Sleater-Kinney and Wild Beasts).

Check out their tour dates and poster below, and get information on the November 3 date at the Tower Theater at the XPN Concert Calendar.
