El Kempner's Palehound have announced their first North American tour dates for next year. Among the shows behind this year's Exclaim! Staff Picks-approved Eye on the Bat are headlining dates with support from Chris Farren, as well as opening slots for Jason Isbell and Sleater-Kinney — including Canadian stops in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

"It feels amazing to be back on the road again, we're having a blast on tour!" the bandleader shared in a press release. "I'm so excited to go back out with Jason Isbell and Sleater-Kinney next year. They're two hugely inspiring acts. The only good thing Twitter has ever done for me is get Jason's attention from a viral tweet I had about my dad who's a superfan and showed up to Red Rocks like hours hrs before doors for one of his shows."

Kempner and co. hit the road starting on February 19 in Wilmington, NC, going on to headline at the Garrison in Toronto (February 23) and Bar Le Ritz in Montreal (February 24). Their Vancouver date at the Vogue Theatre with Sleater-Kinney marks the tour's penultimate stop on April 4 before things wrap up on April 5 in Portland.

Tickets are on sale this Friday (November 17). See the itinerary in full below.
