Rainer Maria recently released "Lower Worlds" off their forthcoming first album in 11 years, which shows off their heavier side without losing that classic Rainer Maria sound. Now they've announced a tour in support of the album, leading up to their appearance at The Fest.

The tour includes a NYC show on September 27 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/30) at noon.

There's also a Connecticut show on September 30 with a cool lineup featuring Mates of State and Selector Dub Narcotic (aka Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening/K Records/etc). No other acts announced for the rest of the tour dates yet. All dates are listed below.

Rainer Maria's new album S/T comes out on August 18 via Polyvinyl.
