Bon Iver have announced a new slate of North American tour dates for September and October, including the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood on Sunday, September 15, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and more bolded below.

To further the growing community, Jenn Wasner, of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes, will join Justin Vernon, Sean Carey, Matthew McCaughan, Michael Lewis, and Andrew Fitzpatrick to form the Bon Iver live band. Feist, Indigo Girls, Sharon Van Etten, and Yo La Tengo will support select dates. Tickets are available here at 10am local time on Friday, June 7th, following an artist presale from June 5th, 10am local time, to June 6th, 10pm local time.

Today, Bon Iver also release “Hey, Ma” and “U (Man Like),” two new songs featuring contributions from Bruce Hornsby, Moses Sumney, Jenn Wasner, Elsa Jensen, Psymun, Phil Cook, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and others.
