Wilco made headlines last week when they pulled a super sneaky move and released their brand new album, Star Wars without anyone’s knowledge.
A few days after the release of the new record, the indie band have announced plans to head out on the road beginning in August in support of the new album.
The tour will kick off on Aug. 1 at the Gathering of the Vibes Festival in Bridgeport, CT. The trip will then wrap up with the Chicago group performing two nights (Sept. 29 and 30) at Austin’s Stubb’s. Supporters for the tour, which will alternate, include Jenny Lewis, Vetiver, Speedy Ortiz, and William Tyler.
The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below which also includes a couple of music festivals such as Toronto’s Urban Roots Festival and Ottawa’s CityFolk Festival.
