While autumn isn't technically upon us just yet, Stars already have visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads: the Montreal indie stalwarts have announced a handful of North American tour dates for the holiday season.

​"Is it all the way we wanted it to be? Will we ever understand each other? Can you still love people even when you don't even recognize them anymore? Do we really need to eat and drink for two weeks and literally never get off the couch?" Stars wondered in a statement.

They continued:

Who knows? But we're having Christmas anyway! So let's make it the best one ever. This year, Like every year (minus two) we are back with our Holiday shows all along the East Coast of North America. We're adding a couple of cities to our holiday family as well! and we more than hope that you call your friends, put on an ugly sweater and join us. We love you. Life sucks. Let's party.

Starting on November 30 at Maxwells in Waterloo, the band will kick off the trek with additional Canadian dates at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall on December 1 and a hometown gig at Montreal's Théâtre Fairmount on December 2. They'll then proceed over the border to play Boston, Hamden, New York, Washington and Philadelphia.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday (September 23) at 10 a.m. ET via the band's website, following a presale exclusive to Stars' Patreon supporters tomorrow (September 21).
