Kurt Vile Expands North American Tour, Hits Up Toronto, Kingston, Vancouver
Philly psych folk songwriter Kurt Vile is gearing up for his new full-length LP, Smoke Ring for My Halo, which will drop on March 8 via Matador. Following a string of already announced dates in support of the album, he's now expanding his itinerary, adding a chunk of new U.S. and Canadian dates.

The outing will have Vile on the road for a month and a half, running from early April until late May. There are three Canadian dates in total, including a performance at CMW in Toronto with J. Mascis. There are also newly announced shows in Kingston, ON (March 12), and Vancouver (April 25).

Following the CMW date, Vile will be supporting Mascis for a number of U.S. dates. Along the way, the young songwriter will be performing with his backing band the Violators.
