The Vaselines, circa 2010

Reunited Scottish indie-pop outfit The Vaselines today unveiled a 22-date North American tour set for October that includes a trio of dates in Mexico with fellow Scots Belle and Sebastian as well as a smattering of shows with Teenage Fanclub, Superchunk and the Dum Dum Girls.

Having reunited in 2008 after nearly 20 years apart, the band — featuring founders Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee — will release its second album, Sex With An X, on Sept. 13 in the U.K. and Sept. 14 in North America (listen to first single “I Hate the ’80s” below), before embarking on a short, previously announced U.K. tour.

The Vaselines open their North American tour with an Oct. 2 concert with Teenage Fanclub in Washington, D.C., and spend most of the month on the road, wrapping up on Halloween in Quebec. In between, there’ll be three gigs in Mexico with Belle and Sebastian, plus a Los Angeles date with Superchunk (see full tour dates below).
