Canadian-rockers Black Mountain have announced a North American tour, rounding out the summer nicely with dates spanning the Western United States and of course, Canada. Not a bad way to end the summer, eh? The tour kicks off on August 18 in British Columbia at the Big Time Out Festival, and wraps up on September 7 in Portland, OR, at Music Fest NW.

Since their formation in 2004, the 5-piece group have released three full-length albums and two EPs, and earlier this year recorded the soundtrack for the post-apocalyptic surf film Year Zero. They’ve also received plenty of critical acclaim – in 2005 they opened for Coldplay on select tour dates, and in 2009 earned themselves a Juno Award nomination for “Best Alternative Album.” Also heading out on the road with Black Mountain is Mirror Lake, Quest for Fire, Basketball and Von Bingen, Two Gallants, Future Islands, Grandparents and Old Lights, all of whom will act as support for varying dates.
