Speedy Ortiz announce U.S. tour dates

on June 12, 2014, 8:40pm

Massachusetts indie rockers Speedy Ortiz have announced a new set of U.S. tour dates in continued support of last year’s excellent Major Arcana. This latest leg actually kicks off tonight (June 12th), continues into appearances at the Bonnaroo and 4 Knots fests, and winds down with a slot at Pitchfork. Following a brief U.K. tour, Speedy Ortiz returns in September to perform at the Pygmalion and Midpoint festivals. Consult their full schedule below.

This tour is the band’s first without guitarist Matt Robidoux, who announced last month he would be going on an indefinite hiatus. The band has since tapped Devin McKnight, of Boston’s Grass Is Green, to fill in for this leg.
