As we mentioned last week, the Dirty Projectors have a new album, Swing Lo Magellan, coming out on July 10th. The Brooklyn band has now announced an extensive tour schedule in support of their new release. The tour will begin in Canada in the beginning of July, and will then span the US for the rest of the summer, ending in mid-August. The openers for the tour are Baltimore indie-folk duo Wye Oak, and our previous Sasquatch! artist of the week, Purity Ring.

Dirty Projectors have announced a new album, a follow-up to 2009’s successful Bitte Orca. The 12-track LP, titled Swing Lo Magellan, is set to be released on July 10th in the US, via Domino. Though the band has not yet announced any new tour dates, they have two upcoming shows scheduled, in Brooklyn on July 10th and at Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 13-15.
