Brooklyn-based psych-rockers Crumb have their new album AMAMA coming out on May 17, and they've just announced that they're going to take it on the road this summer with the support of L'Rain, Discovery Zone and Vagabon on select dates.

The tour includes a pair of Canadian dates: Toronto's Concert Hall on August 31 and Montreal's Beanfield Theatre on September 1. The rest of the tour takes place stateside — sorry Vancouver. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, April 26, at 10 a.m. local time.

To mark the tour news, the band have also shared a new song from the record, "The Bug," about which Crumb's Lila Ramani said in a release:

"The Bug" is a song that has existed in our universe since early Crumb days, pre-Jinx era. The origins go back to a motel in Nebraska on one of our earliest tours when I woke up with a bunch of bed bug bites. Wired and unable to sleep, I wandered around the motel singing what would become the outro to the song. Years later when we were finally recording it, it took on a more tender meaning… the bug doesn't have to be an insect — the bug can be a friend, a lover, or that nagging feeling that finds you late at night.

Check that out here, and find the band's North American tour itinerary below.
