The Weakerthans frontman John K Samson returned last year with Winter Wheat, which he made with two of his three Weakerthans bandmates and which we called one of the best emo/punk albums of 2016. We already knew he was opening two dates on Frank Turner's tour this month, and now he has a headlining tour announced too.

His tour, which has him backed by a band that he's calling The Winter Wheat (after his new album), hits NYC on April 5 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/20) at noon. All dates are listed below.
