The trek begins July 11th in Philadelphia and includes stops in Brooklyn, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Denver and Seattle before wrapping August 3rd in Vancouver. Tickets go on sale April 7th at 10 a.m. local time, while pre-sale will be available for some concerts.
The Violent Femmes are still touring in support of We Can Do Anything, their ninth LP, which arrived last March. We Can Do Anything marked the band's first album since 2000's Freak Magnet, though in 2015 they released an EP for Record Store Day, Happy New Year. The Violent Femmes are reportedly working on the follow-up to We Can Do Anything, which is expected to arrive this year.
Echo and the Bunnymen, meanwhile, continue to tour regularly, having released their most recent album, Meteorites, in 2014. Prior to the trek with the Violent Femmes, singer Ian McCulloch will embark on a solo tour of the United Kingdom.
