The New Pornographers
will be hitting the road this spring on a U.S. tour with support from Waxahatchee. After kicking things off at Minneapolis’ famed First Avenue on April 18, the band will hit major cities across the American Midwest, South and East Coast, and, per a press release, their sets will feature new songs off of a yet-to-be-announced new album. That will end up being the group’s seventh record, coming after 2014’s Brill Bruiser.
For Waxahatchee’s part, Katie Crutchfield is promising that these sets will be “special Waxahatchee ‘duo’ shows,” but there is no word yet on whether this tour is forecasting the follow-up to her 2015 standout, Ivy Tripp.
See the full list of tour dates below, along with footage from a 2008 New Pornographers show via the Paste Cloud. Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m., and Waxahatchee joins for all dates.
