Following last week's release of the masterful MCIII, symphonic garage pop guru Mikal Cronin has added another batch of tour dates to his global tour plans, which includes stops in Canada.

The Los Angeles artist heads over to Europe at the end of the month, but a press release now adds that he'll have a hefty tour schedule to tackle upon his return. A few U.S. festival appearances are booked throughout the summer months, but his North American trek doesn't kick into full gear until September. He'll hit both Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret and Toronto's Adelaide Hall before making it to Pop Montreal on September 17.

The newly announced dates have him supported on a series of headlining shows by the Cairo Gang, while he'll usher in the fall season by opening up for Father John Misty on a handful of U.S. dates. The full details on Cronin's upcoming concert schedule can be seen below.

You'll find Exclaim!'s in-depth and personal interview with Cronin about the genesis of MCIII over here, while his comical Natalie Imbruglia-spoofing video for "Turn Around" is beneath the concert info.
