The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn has announced a tour supporting his upcoming solo album I Need A New War (due 4/26 via Partisan), and he also released an official live video for the album’s lead single, “Blankets.” The video was filmed at his show at Brooklyn’s Murmrr Theatre last month, where Craig performed the album in full before it was announced. Watch below.

The tour includes NYC shows at Joe’s Pub on June 12 and 13. Tickets for night one and night two are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Craig is currently on a UK/EU tour with The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon, and The Hold Steady also have a few upcoming shows, including NJ/CT shows in May and Boston with Frank Turner.
