Currently in the midst of an international festival and headline run spanning Japan to the Netherlands, Broken Bells has confirmed the addition of three new dates to its ongoing debut world tour: James Mercer and Brian Burton a/k/a Danger Mouse will be bringing Broken Bells to the Fox Theater in Oakland on October 5, the Wiltern in Los Angeles on October 6 and New York City's Terminal 5 on October 11. The new dates bracket Broken Bells' already announced appearance at this year's Austin City Limits festival on October 9.
Broken Bells' self titled debut album has sold over 200,000 copies domestically since its March 9 Columbia Records release, nearly 50,000 of which were moved in its first week - landing the record at #7 on the Billboard 200 and #1 at its peak on iTunes). In addition to being the year's highest charting debut album by an alternative/rock band, Broken Bells met with an instantly and unanimously positive critical reception: Rolling Stone hailed the album as "the year's coolest left field pop disc" in a 4-star lead review, while Wired described it as "crazy good stuff" and Entertainment Weekly praised it as a "subtly savory sonic morsel." More recently, Broken Bells came in at #4 in NPR's best music of 2010 so far listeners poll.
