A couple weeks ago, the reunited shoegaze band Slowdive released its first song in 22 years, the peppy and powerful “Star Roving.” Now the band has announced a North American tour that will kick off this May. Though it’s only a scant five dates, it shows that Slowdive is getting back in the swing of being a band again in advance of a new album on Dead Oceans. The dates can be found below, with tickets going on sale this Friday. All five shows will be opened by Japanese Breakfast.
