While SXSW attendees were among the first folks to hear to hear The Antlers’ latest LP Burst Apart, the rest of the U.S. and Canada will get their chance to hear cuts from the new album when the band hit the road starting this summer.
Following an appearance at the U.K.’s The Great Escape, The Antlers will kick off their North American May 17th in Washington, DC. From there, it’s shows in New York, a gig at Sasquatch!, several throughout California and Texas, and on to Chicago, IL, Detroit, MI, and Canada before the whole thing winds down on June 17th in Hamden, CT. The Antlers are bringing Little Scream along for the ride, except for their June 15th show in Montreal when they’ll team up with The Dodos.
A ticket pre-sale begins Wednesday, March 30th, with a public on-sale to follow Friday, April 1st.
Burst Apart is set to hit stores May 10th via Frenchkiss.
