Explosions in the Sky have mapped out an additional leg of North American tour dates in support of their latest LP, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. Following their ongoing European tour and appearances at summer festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, the Austin, TX-based instrumental rockers will launch a six-week swing in Tuscon, AZ on September 1st. From there, EITS will make their way up the U.S. West coast and into Canada before hitting Denver, CO, Dallas, TX, and New Orleans, LA, among other cities, as they make their way east. After playing locales like Philadelphia, PA, Boston, MA, and Toronto, ON in early October, the band will then close out their trek with a series of Midwest shows, culminating with an October 13th performance in Oklahoma City, OK. Find the complete touring schedule below.

Fan club pre-sale for the new dates begin Wednesday, May 25th with a general on sale following Friday, May 27th. Baltimore-based indie duo Wye Oak will open select dates.
