Shortly after alt-country pioneers the Jayhawks drop their long-awaited new album, Paging Mr. Proust, on April 29, they'll be taking their new songs (and undoubtedly plenty of the old ones) on the road for a string of North American tour dates beginning in late May.

The upcoming run kicks off in Wisconsin on May 13 and will cover the Midwest and East Coast before winding down on the Jayhawks' home turf in Minneapolis on July 1. But the left side of the U.S. shouldn't feel left out: West coast dates are said to be coming in July. Check out the dates announced so far below.

Paging Mr. Proust will be the ninth album from the alt-country pioneers and their first since 2011's Mockingbird Time. Co-produced by band leader Gary Louris, Tucker Martine (the Decemberists, Modest Mouse) and R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, it's also the Jayhawks' first album since returning from hiatus in 2014. The 11-song album features plenty of the lustrous harmonies and heavenly hooks that became signatures of the Jayhawks back in the '90s, but with elbow room for experimentation too. Listen to the already shared "Quiet Corners & Empty Spaces" below.
