The New Pornographers have announced new tour dates for later this year. It marks the band’s first proper outing in two years.
The 15-date trek kicks off in Toronto on August 17th and wraps up in Atlanta on November 12th. Along the way, the New Pornographers will perform at Pygmalion Music Festival in Urbana, IL and Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival in Columbia, MO. Update: Lady Lamb will provide support on a majority of the dates.
What’s the occasion for the tour? Well, supposedly there’s new music from the band forthcoming. In the meantime, revisit the New Pornographers’ last album, 2017’s Whiteout Conditions, as well as a live rendition of the title track as performed on Late Show with Stephen Colbert that same year.
Presale tickets for their upcoming tour go on sale June 26th at 10 a.m. local time. Visit the band’s website for more information. Check out the full list of tour dates below.
