Canadian indie rock band Alvvays have been relatively quiet since releasing 2017’s Antisocialites, but they recently announced their return with North American fall tour dates.

The band dropped the news hours after teasing new music, accompanied by a caption that read “morphing out.” Following an appearance at Courtney Barnett’s Here and There Festival in August, they’ll officially kick off the tour in Chicago on October 14. They’ll snake through the West Coast before heading to the East, concluding in Boston on November 16. Pre-sale tickets will be available on Wednesday.

The Toronto-based band — fronted by Molly Rankin — released their excellent self-titled debut in 2014. “When we were starting out, there was some expectation that I would be a certain type of frontperson, that I would develop into someone very charismatic and comfortable — and that’s never really happened,” Rankin told The Guardian in 2017. “But it’s not really the school I come from. I don’t like to really rock out on stage or have some kind of strange rock persona. Over time, I’ve learned that I’m allowed to be just this reserved, awkward human.”
