John Darnielle and co. made the reveal today, outlining both their plans for new music in 2019 and a tour that kicks off near the end of April.
"Good people of the Mountain Goatsmassive, we are pleased to report that we have sojourned for a season in the cave upon the hillside where the ancient crystals tremble; and have returned from thence with much news, of which you will all be soon made aware," Darnielle said in a statement. "The first bit of this news is that we are going to tour like wild hounds."
The trek kicks off on April 26, and along with playing a pile of U.S. cities, the band will make their way to several Canadian venues. Included on the schedule are the cities such as Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.
You can see the full schedule below and stay tuned for more info about the Mountain Goats' new material as it becomes available.
The last Mountain Goats' release was the 2018 surprise EP Hex of Infinite Binding, with the project's last proper full-length arriving in 2017 with Goths.
