After sharing The Waves, The Wake last year, Great Lake Swimmers have announced plans to take the effort on tour through Canada later this year.

The band have lined up six dates throughout Ontario and Quebec this June, playing intimate venues in Montreal, Wakefield, Burnstown, Peterborough, Kingston and Ridgeway. Tickets for all dates are on sale now, and you can find them here.

Great Lake Swimmers have also shared a cover of Jason Molina's "The Dark Don't Hide It," which opens Magnolia Electric Co.'s 2005 LP What Comes After the Blues. You can watch the band's interpretation in the player below.

"We had the honour of opening for Magnolia Electric Co. a few times over the years in places as disparate as Austin, Texas and Brussels, Belgium," Great Lake Swimmers' Tony Dekker recalled in a statement. "Jason's music has always meant a lot to me, as Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co., and also in his solo albums and collaborations, and it is in regular rotation in our tour van. Our cover of 'The Dark Don't Hide It' by Magnolia Electric Co. is an homage to his influence and the body of work he gave us."

06/06 Montreal, QC - Bar Le Ritz
06/07 Wakefield, QC - The Blacksheep Inn
06/08 Burnstown, ON - Neat Café
