The Birthday Massacre release new song 'Counterpane,' announce North American tour
The Birthday Massacre - Counterpane & North American Tour Dates!

Since last summer, Canadian synthpop band The Birthday Massacre have been working on their new studio album Under Your Spell, which is slated to be released on June 9 via Metropolis Records. With the days counting down until the album's release, the band have held small listening parties to rave reviews from fans. It's been a while since the outfit toured the country, but starting in May, they're heading back on the road.

Revealed yesterday, their North American tour kicks off with a hometown performance at The Opera House in Toronto on May 18. The trek continues across the country with performances in St. Louis (Ready Room on May 22), Seattle (El Corazon on May 29), and New York City (The Marlin Room at Webster Hall on June 19). The band will be joined by Italian industrial dance outfit Army of the Universe, who are promoting their latest album 1999 & The Aftershow, and electronic outfit Ludovico Technique.

General tickets are on sale right now, but if you have a few more dollars to spend, you can pick up VIP tickets, which include a meet and greet and photo op with The Birthday Massacre, a signed drumhead, an entry into soundcheck where the band will perform two rare tracks. The Birthday Massacre's PledgeMusic campaign closes this Friday at midnight. Tour dates can be seen below. You can check out their tour video, which includes the new song "Counterpane." Under Your Spell can be pre-ordered here.
