According to this tweet, a gentleman called Holcombe Waller will be opening up for The Magnetic Fields at a few dates of their 2012 tour. Other openers are yet to be announced, though I'd imagine you know where to go for future clarifications on such subjects.
Also, a trailer for Space Cruiser, the live video game with narration provided by Stephin Merritt premiering tomorrow night now has a trailer. Watch it below.
