    Stereolab have been on hiatus since 2009, but their appearance on recent lineups like Primavera Sound and Desert Daze hinted that 2019 would mark a return for the avant-pop group. Today, the London-based band’s comeback has been confirmed, as they’ve announced a full tour that includes their first North American trek in 11 years, in addition to an extensive reissue campaign series.

    The upcoming outing launches May 30th and runs all the way until the end of October. Stereolab are scheduled to hit the UK and Europe first, with shows slated in Paris, Manchester, Leeds, and Dublin, along with previously announced festival sets at Best Kept Secret and Green Man Festival.
