The New Pornographers reveal U.S. tour dates

Critically acclaimed Vancouver-based group The New Pornographers are set to tour the U.S. this spring, kicking off the run of dates at Minneapolis’ storied First Avenue on April 18. The tour includes dates at The Metro in Chicago, New York’s Terminal 5 and Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club, wrapping up at Stubb’s in Austin on May 6. See below for a complete list. The band will be performing songs from their forthcoming seventh full-length record, details to be announced soon.
Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers, hailed as an “exuberant, synthpop-infused set” by Rolling Stone, “infectious” by Harper’s Bazaar and “the grand and purposeful hookfest that you would hope these guys would come back with” by Stereogum. Pitchfork went on to note that “with the futurist sound of Brill Bruisers, the whole band embraces a more electric version of itself—bulked-up in chrome-plated armor, firing on all cylinders, and ready to steamroll anything in its path.” The band celebrated the release with a special NPR Music “First Listen Live” concert at the legendary Brill Building, and performed songs from the album on both “Conan” and the “Late Show with David Letterman.”
