A day after being the first acts confirmed for next year's Buku Music + Art Project in New Orleans, Sylvan Esso on Wednesday announced a new round of North American tour dates for 2018.
The new run of shows includes stops in Honolulu, Atlanta, Houston, Tulsa, Knoxville, and Grand Rapids, among other cities. There's also a noticeable gap the week of SXSW in March, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as many acts who perform at the Buku festival tend to show up at SXSW the following week.
The North Carolina duo has had a busy past year touring and hitting a number of festivals in support of their new sophomore album What Now, which was released in April. To celebrate today's news, they've also shared a live performance video for their single "Die Young," filmed at last month's Shakori Hills Festival in Silk Hope, N.C.
Tickets for Sylvan Esso's new shows go on sale this Friday (Nov. 10), but fans currently subscribed to the band's newsletter will have access to a pre-sale starting at 10 a.m. local time on Thursday.
Watch the "Die Young" live video below, followed by the new tour dates.
