Johnny Marr will embark on a lengthy North American tour this fall in support of his new album, Call the Comet, out June 15th.

The trek kicks off September 15th at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, Tennessee and includes stops in Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Mexico City, Toronto and Boston. The tour wraps October 21st at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tickets go on sale June 1st, with complete information available on Marr’s website.

The former Smiths guitarist has a handful of spring shows scheduled to celebrate the release of Call the Comet as well. Over the next week, he’ll play gigs in Toronto, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Call the Comet marks Marr’s third solo album and follows 2014’s Playland. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Marr explained how Brexit and the election of President Donald Trump inspired the record. 

“I wouldn’t call it a concept record,” he said. “But it’s got a unifying theme going through it about the Earth welcoming a different intelligence from the cosmos to save us from our own plight. The title Call the Comet is sort of a conscious plea for a new way.”
