Destroyer released their latest album, Have We Met, back in January 2020, and launched a supporting tour the following month. Of course, that trek was cut short by the pandemic, and the band has been waiting to return to the road ever since. Well, the time has finally come, as Destroyer have announced a fresh round of 2022 tour dates.
The North American leg launches April 22nd in Vancouver, with scheduled stops including Salt Lake City, Denver, Nashville, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Toronto, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Austin, and Fort Worth. Things will wrap up exactly one month after they start on May 22nd at Portland, Oregon’s Revolution Hall.
The full itinerary can be found below, and tickets will be available via Ticketmaster beginning Friday, November 5th at 10:00 a.m. local time.
In addition to the new dates, Destroyer have shared the Have We Met tour documentary, capturing some of the few shows they were actually able to play pre-COVID. This isn’t your typical music doc, however, as the “ambient” 30-minute piece is described as “like ASMR for the soul.”
Directed by David Galloway, the short film takes viewers through the mundanity of touring life, such as rolling up posters for the merch table, doing laundry between gigs, and Destroyer’s Dan Bejar eating a sub. Life on the road isn’t all glamour and rock and roll, after all.
Watch the Have We Met doc ahead.
