Yes indeed, Dinosaur Jr. have slated a handful of dates to the band’s world tour behind Beyond, the reunited trio’s first recorded material together in nearly 20 years. Now, following a lengthy jaunt throughout Europe, the band will land stateside and take their face-slashing six-string fingerings through New York and Philadelphia, as well as West Coast cities like Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles.

Next, Bazan will weave through Texas, drop into Nebraska, Kansas, and Ohio before strolling through eastern seaboard outposts like New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
