Two of the East Coast’s favorite indie bands, Philly’s Hop Along and Boston’s Speedy Ortiz, are teaming up for a new tour. While the former will be supporting the acclaimed Painted Shut, the latter will continue to support the equally adored Foil Deer. The co-headlining jaunt kicks off in early May and will see the two outfits switching off sets over the course of 12 stops throughout North America.

Before the spring dates, each band will also play shows with Dr. Dog. Find the complete schedule below.
