It’s shaping up to be a busy 2020 for Stephen Malkmus.

So far, Malkmus has a new album, Traditional Techniques, slated to be released in March and today, he added a bunch of new dates to his 2020 tour.

Malkmus will now hit Los Angeles, San Francisco and a bunch more cities on the West Coast and Canada beginning in late June in addition to his previously announced shows on the East Coast.

Additionally, Malkmus shared a performance of the previously unreleased “Brainwashed” from a recent appearance on La Blogothèque.
