Pop pianist Ben Folds and Brooklyn, N.Y.-based indie rock outfit Clem Snide will embark on a tour of the U.S. in late November. Folds wrapped the first leg of his initial solo U.S. tour just two weeks ago, and will play six dates in Japan before returning to the U.S.

Folds is supporting his first solo album, "Rockin' the Suburbs" (Epic), which debuted at No. 42 on The Billboard 200 in late September. Clem Snide is touring behind its third album, "The Ghost of Fashion" (spinART), released in June. The latest single from the album, "Moment in the Sun," was recently chosen as the theme music for the NBC sitcom "Ed," which just began its second season.

The group has scheduled a handful of European dates, including four French gigs opening for Mercury Rev, before the Folds trek.
