Published Feb 14, 2017If you've been hankering for a bit more Belle and Sebastian in your life, you're in luck, as the Glaswegian indie-pop vets are coming back to North America for a tour ahead of a new album.
Come July, the band will cross the pond for a string of North American dates, starting things off over here in Toronto on July 27. Along the way, they will play with the likes of Spoon, Julien Baker, Andrew Bird and Ex-Hex.
You can see the schedule, which unfortunately only includes that one Canadian date, below.
A press release also promises, "The band has been recording new material in their native Glasgow, due to be revealed later in 2017 on Matador Records." It also adds that you can expect the band to show off some of the new material live.
