By Gregory AdamsMercury Prize winners Alt-J are currently capping off a memorable 2012 with a handful of U.S. dates, but the British pop-rock band are sticking to a pretty jam-packed schedule in 2013, as they've just announced a couple more months of dates.
Alt-J's January and February activities are reasonably spare, with some dates scheduled in London and across Australia and New Zealand. Come March, the band gets back into a full-time grind on a month-long trek around North America. While the bulk of the dates zig-zag them across the U.S., they have booked Canadian appearances in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. You can see the details, up to and including summer dates in the UK, down below.
