Headlining a tour might be new to the experimental folkies in Blitzen Trapper, but at least the six-piece band from Portland knows how to do it right. Rather than play a few forgettable dates here and there over the last year, the band has saved all its energy for a massive North American tour that kicks off in late February and will continue through the spring. Joining them on the road will be Fleet Foxes, a new band from Seattle, as well as Grand Archives, Beach House, Papercuts, and Mahjongg.

No date has been announced for the band’s fourth full-length, set for release on Sub Pop. In the meantime, you can head to one of these shows, where a six-song, tour-only EP will be exclusively available for sale.
