Austra to Head Back Out on Canada/U.S. Tour

Austra to Head Back Out on Canada/U.S. Tour
Austra were one of Canada's most buzzed-about bands in 2011, and the Toronto-based goth-pop act are looking to keep on spreading the word. In the coming months, they will be embarking on a busy tour schedule that finds them playing shows all over the world, and includes a number of shows here in their home and native land.

This month, the band will be travelling across continental Europe before playing a number of UK shows in June. Then, after a smattering of dates in August, including appearances at HARD Toronto and Montreal's Osheaga, the North American leg will begin in earnest in September, when Austra will start on the West Coast before heading east and wrapping things up with a series of shows in Ontario.

All told, the group have ten scheduled Canadian appearances so far. See the tour schedule below.
