Pedro the Lion have announced a North American tour, on which they'll celebrate release anniversaries of 1998 debut It's Hard to Find a Friend and 2022's Control.

"This year, 1998's It's Hard to Find a Friend and 2002's Control, turn 25 and 21 years old, respectively," the band wrote in announcing the trek. "To celebrate, [David Bazan], along with guitar player Erik Walters and drummer Terence Ankeny, will play every song from each album on tour."

A lone Canadian stop on the 38-date run will bring the trio to Toronto's Great Hall on May 3. Walters will open each show of the tour with a set of his own material.

Tickets for all shows go on sale January 20 at 10 a.m. local time and you can find the complete itinerary below, ahead of further ticketing info via Pedro the Lion's official website.

In 2018, Bazan announced Pedro the Lion had signed with Polyvinyl to release the following year's Phoenix, marking the first LP from the project since 2004's Achilles Heel. Last year, the trio shared sixth album Havasu.
