Grimes Announces ‘Rhinestone Cowgirls’ Tour, Promises New Music Beforehand

The North American trek will feature Nicole Dollanganger, whose new album is out on Grimes pseudo-label

Update: Grimes has added a new crop of tour dates, all of which will take place in Europe. The Ac!d Reign tour will promote her forthcoming album, and she’ll be joined by HANA. Check out the dates below. 

Grimes has been teasing a new record for the better part of the last two years, and now it finally seems there’ll be a chance to hear more of the new material soon. Today, she’s announced a lengthy North American tour for October and November called “Rhinestone Cowgirls” and shared the news on Instagram that she hadn’t started booking the tour until the album was finished. She also promised “new trax b4″ the tour starts and says that all that’s left to be done is “mixing and working on vids.”

A few of the dates will feature opening sets from Nicole Dollanganger, a macabre songwriter whose many Bandcamp releases caused Grimes to launch a pseudo-label called Eerie Organization to put out her new record Natural Born Losers. Today, she’s sharing a video for “Angels of Porn,” which you can check out below along with the tour dates.
