As the release of their new studio album nears, The New Pornographers have put together a massive North American tour. About a month after the May 4th unveiling of Together, A.C. Newman, Dan Bejar, and the rest of the Canadian indie outfit will embark on a road trip that will keep them out and about for two months as they travel across both their native country and the United States. Update: We’re told by the band’s publicist that Neko Case is indeed expected to take part.

First up is an appearance at Sasquatch!, followed by dates in in Canada and the States (specifically the Midwest and East Coast), all before wrapping back around west for dates in California and Texas. The New Pornographers will then conclude their travels with a performance in Madison, Wisconsin on August 4th. [Insert Lollapalooza speculation here.]

Plus, as an added bonus, the tour will see The New Pornographers team up with the likes of The Mountain Goats, The Dutchess and the Duke, The Doods, and Imaad Wasif along the way. Find a full list of the upcoming dates (including who plays where and when) below.

Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, March 26th via Ticketmaster.com. A pre-sale starts on Wednesday, March 24th.

In other awesome news, Together‘s first single, “Crash Years”, is now available on iTunes. What’s more, pre-order the physical copy of the album through Matador and you’ll receive “Togetherness:  The New Pornographers Play Outrageous Cherry”, a free 7″ featuring the band covering three songs by Detroit band Outrageous Cherry.
