After doing some cryptic teasing last week, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten and Julien Baker have announced The Wild Hearts Tour, which will see the three indie-rock powerhouses teaming up for a co-headlining string of North American shows.
Spencer. will support the trio throughout the run, which kicks off in Virginia on July 21 before wrapping on August 21 in New York. The tour will be rolling through Toronto on August 12, and tickets go on sale this Friday (January 14) at 10 a.m. local time.

In a statement about the tour, Olsen wrote:
I'm so thrilled to be travelling and playing music alongside Spencer., Julien Baker and Sharon Van Etten. It's truly a dream, something to hold and share collaboratively as we get out from under the last few years. I know for fans it's something different and special too, and for me, it's sort of like a caravan summer camp — a chance to get to know other artists in a deeper way and talk about music and life and how it affects us all as we move forward. Most of all, I am excited to sing live again, in an open and real way, both alone and together with my tourmates.
In their own statements, Van Etten described the tour as an opportunity "to strengthen our respective communities and promote camaraderie in the music world in a safe and enjoyable environment," while Baker wrote, "Sharon and Angel are artists that I have genuinely admired for many years and whose music has honestly informed much of my own writing and music-making, and I'm thrilled to be sharing a stage with them every night."
The tour will consist of mostly outdoor venues, and the trio has partnered with PLUS1, promising that one dollar from each ticket sold will go to support those rebuilding their lives following incarceration.
Last year, Olsen and Van Etten teamed up for the one-off (for now, anyway) single "Like I Used To." Baker also released her third record Little Oblivions that same year.
