Porcupine Tree will return with their first new album in 12 years this June, and before Closure / Continuation arrives, the trio have announced plans to take it on tour in North America later this year.

Today, the English prog outfit — featuring frontman Steven Wilson, keyboardist Richard Barbieri and drummer Gavin Harrison — have unveiled new tour dates in North and South America, two of which come in Canada.

Porcupine Tree will kick off the tour with a pair of stops in Canada. A first date will bring them to Toronto's Meridian Hall on September 10, ahead of a stop at Place Bell in Laval, QC, on September 12.

You can find Porcupine Tree's complete 2022 tour itinerary below, alongside new song "Of the New Day" and Closure / Continuation's newly revealed tracklist.

Tickets for Porcupine Tree's North American tour dates go on sale to the general public March 11 at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster. Listeners who pre-order the new album will gain access to a presale for North and South America dates, running March 9 at 10 a.m. through March 10th. Further details are available via the band's official website.

As previously reported, Closure / Continuation arrives June 24 via Music For Nations/Megaforce Records, and will mark their first full-length release since 2009's The Incident. In 2020, Porcupine Tree shared rare recordings on Bandcamp.

In January of last year, Wilson delivered solo album THE FUTURE BITES.
