Zeal & Ardor
Zeal & Ardor

The following new tours were announced. Check the Tour Dates category every day for more.

SIMPLE MINDS

The band behind such ’80s classics as “Don’t You Forget About Me,” “Alive and Kicking,” “Up on the Catwalk,” “Glittering Prize,” “Sanctify Yourself” and more will be on tour in North America this fall including a NYC show on October 2 at Beacon Theatre. All shows feature two full sets spanning their entire career. They’ve just added more dates, including a handful each in Texas and Florida. Head here for all dates and tickets.

THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM

The Gaslight Anthem are back from hiatus and playing their beloved The ’59 Sound in full, and having just played two NYC shows this past weekend, they extended their tour to hit Asbury Park, Boston, and Philly in August.

MITSKI

Mitski’s anticipated new album Be the Cowboy comes out in August and she just announced a fall tour in support of it.

MASTODON / DINOSAUR JR

Having just played NJ and NY with Primus over the weekend, Mastodon expanded their tour with Dinosaur Jr to add a NY show (and a Maryland show). Tickets for both newly-added shows go on BrooklynVegan presale on Tuesday.

BODY/HEAD

Kim Gordon and Bill Nace’s improvisational project Body/Head will release new album, The Switch, on July 13 and begin a tour that same day. East Coast shows are with Gunn-Truscinski Duo (aka Steve Gunn and John Truscinski).

ASH

Irish alt-rock vets Ash returned this year with Islands, which is another dose of the kind of punky power pop they did so well in the ’90s. They’ve been touring in support of it, and having recently played NYC, they now added another NYC show for their return to North America in September: 9/14 at Mercury Lounge. All dates and tickets HERE.

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000

In the not too distant future, the much loved cult TV show where a regular guy in a red jumpsuit and his robot friends are forced to watch cheesy movies will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a live tour featuring creator Joel Hodgson and current host Jonah Ray.

JAWBREAKER

Punk greats Jawbreaker finally reunited last year and they continue to slowly expand their tour schedule. Their latest additions are two Portland shows with Swearin’ and Hurry Up. Speaking of Swearin’…

SWEARIN’ / EMPATH

Swearin’ recently signed to Merge and they’re promising new music. In the meantime, they continue to tour, including a just-announced run with support from promising Philly noise rockers Empath.

ZEAL & ARDOR / ASTRONOID

Zeal & Ardor makes a very unique mix of blues, slave spirituals and black metal, and he’s taking his eccentric show on the road this fall with support from another genre-crossing metal act, Astronoid. The coast-to-coast tour begins in Philly and hits Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg the next night (9/21). All dates HERE. Zeal & Ardor’s sophomore album Stranger Fruit comes out this week (6/8) and you can hear a track from that:
