Belle and Sebastian at Williamsburg Waterfront in 2010 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Belle and Sebastian

Scottish indie pop vets Belle and Sebastian haven't gone on a full tour of North America in over two years, but once they were announced as a headliner for this year's Pitchfork Festival, we knew they'd finally be crossing the Atlantic again. And now, a full tour leading up to their slot at that festival has been announced. Many of the dates are with fellow indie legends Yo La Tengo (who just released an album and played NYC), including the NYC date, which is a Celebrate Brooklyn! show at Prospect Park on July 11. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check ticketmaster for updates.

Belle and Sebastian are also the subject of a new "Pitchfork Classic" documentary, which is an hour-long exploration of their 1996 album, If You're Feeling Sinister, directed by RJ Bentler. You can watch that documentary and check out a list of all upcoming dates below...
