For the first time in nearly three years, shoe-gazing French natives Alcest will be heading across the pond to headline a North American tour this fall, as per an announcement released via their Facebook page yesterday afternoon. With opening act Emma Ruth Rundle in tow, the tour will set out mid-September and will spend the following month winding its way across the continent – and by continent, I mostly mean the U.S. Head on over the jump for further details and a full list of dates!

Despite having “U.S. and Mexico” emblazoned across its poster, some fans were disappointed — and were not at all afraid to express it — to see that the tour will in fact make a single stop in Mexico before rerouting to the Northern U.S. and — surprise! — Canada. Though the tour’s promotional material makes little mention of it, Alcest will be headlining no less than three Canadian dates as part of this tour. Confusing? A little. But hey, as a Torontonian, I’m certainly not complaining!
