The New Pornographers tour kicks off April 12 in L.A.

The New Pornographers

Canadian indie rock band The New Pornographers has shared an interactive lyric video for “High Ticket Attractions” (see below), the first single off their forthcoming album Whiteout Conditions. The band also revealed an April 7 release date for the album. Further, The New Pornographers will be touring around Whiteout Conditions this spring. The tour will kick off April 12 in Los Angeles at The Theatre at Ace Hotel and hit major markets like Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, Washington D.C. and Dallas.

A full list of North American tour dates is below. Indie band Waxahatchee will be joining the TNP as support. Each ticket purchase for shows in the U.S. will include a free download of Whiteout Conditions. You can find select New Pornographer tickets here.

Whiteout Conditions is the first album on the band’s own Collected Works Records imprint, in partnership with Concord Records. The album along with a glow in the dark poster is available for pre-order via the band’s website. New Pornographers founder and frontman A.C. Newman had this to say about making the record:

“At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”
