Following Braids' sneak preview of pizza-scarfin' Flourish//Perish track "Hossak" earlier this morning (July 31), the Montreal-based pop experimenters have now revealed a fall tour schedule behind their impending sophomore LP.

A press release notes that the trio have a show booked in Brooklyn this August, to be followed by a quickie European trip, but the act's full North American trip kicks off with their previously announced appearance during Victoria, BC's Rifflandia festival on September 12. From there, the band crosses the Prairies over to Quebec City before dipping back into the U.S.

Later in the trip, they'll team up with Florida's Hundred Waters for a run of shows that bring them back to Canadian stages in Vancouver, Halifax, Toronto and Montreal before wrapping things up in Orlando. You can see all the details down below.

As previously reported, Braids' sophomore LP Flourish//Perish pops into stores August 20 through Flemish Eye/Arbutus/Full Time Hobby. You can stream "Hossak" beneath the tour dates.
