Chicago’s revered instrumental post-rock ensemble Tortoise is back with a new album and new tour dates lined up for April.
After curating one day of this year’s All Tomorrow’s Parties U.K. festival March 27, the band will launch their North American tour April 14 in Detroit at the Majestic Theatre. They’ll touch down in Canada, the East Coast and the South by the time the outing wraps at the end of the month.
The fifth Tortoise album, It’s All Around You, comes out April 6, giving fans a good week or two to get familiar with the tunes before seeing them performed. The album is the band’s first since 2001’s Standards.
Experimental Canadian rockers Beans are scheduled to open all dates.
