Dinosaur Jr announces fall North American tour dates in support of ‘Farm’

Dinosaur Jr announce fall tour dates

With its new album, Farm, hitting stores today, Dinosaur Jr has announced a nearly two-month, coast-to-coast North American tour that runs from the end of September through late November.

The classic indie-rock act — featuring original members J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph — will play a pair of shows in New York and Massachusetts in mid-August before hitting the road Sept. 30 in Toronto.

The trio is scheduled to play 33 dates, wrapping Nov. 20 in Cleveland Heights, Ohio (see full list of dates below).

The fall tour is the second major trek of the year for Dinosaur Jr, which spent most of May on the road giving fans a preview of Farm, the band’s second post-reunion effort.

To promote today’s release, the group also released a video for Farm cut “Over It” (see below).
