Nearly a year on from the release of their impressive debut album The Words You Spoke Still Move Me, Hamilton's Ellevator have announced a little spring tour of Ontario (plus Montreal) alongside OMBIIGIZI.

The run kicks off in Windsor on April 26, after which the two bands will make their way through London, Guelph, Tillsonburg and Ottawa. Then, they'll finish by leaving the province to play Montreal's Bar Le Ritz on May 6.

Tickets are on sale now through the band's website. To give you a taste of what to expect, Ellevator have shared a new live rendition of their song "The City."

"'The City' is a song and 'The City' is a place where Ellevator has built its home on stage," the band's Tyler Bersche said in a statement. "It's the moment in the set that's won us a hundred rooms. It arcs the evening into a different place. Somewhere disconcerting, angry, uncool. We were afraid that taping it as a performance might rob it of its transcendence."

He continued:

While it doesn't smell like the sweat of the crowd, Nabi [Sue Bersche] locked in an embrace with someone in the audience screaming the lyrics forehead to forehead, all of us on stage totally lost in the deliverance and breaking our shit, [director] Cam [Veitch] did somehow manage to capture "The City" in most of its resplendent chaos. Ellevator is a 'Live Rock Band" and we're so happy to have these moments filmed for your (our) viewing pleasure. More soon.

Watch "The City" live below, where you'll also find the whole tour itinerary.
