Release dates are overrated -- and Leopold and his Fiction have compromised committing to a date by surrendering a track from their upcoming third album in time for SxSW and a national tour. "Golden Friends" will be sold as a limited edition single, available to pick up at our Bay Area Takeover Thursday, March 18 at the Beauty Bar. We've already reported on the upcoming record and their last SF performance at Cafe du Nord, but see the valiant blues-rock trio's national tour schedule after the jump.
