Cast Spells, the nom-de-tune of Maps & Atlases frontman Dave Davison has released a new video for the song "Glamorous Glowing" (watch it HERE -- cleared for re-posting.) Additionally, Cast Spells has announced North American tour dates in December with Steve Mason, formerly of The Beta Band. Please see complete dates below.

The video was directed by Behn Fannin -- whose also crafted eye-catching clips for Melvins, Tera Melos, Good Old War, et al. -- for Refused TV

Davison's heartfelt and charismatic performances are unparalleled -- check out this Glass Room session video of "Potted Plant" (a different version also performed on this recent Daytrotter session.) The Daytrotter recording is a perfect distillation of what some have dubbed the Cast Spells sound as "Peter Gabriel leading The Shins."

Check out Cast Spells' 2009 debut, Bright Works and Baton HERE. A full-length Cast Spells album is in the works for release via Sargent House in 2011.
