Following the directive of their album title, Stars will be kicking off their 2012 tour in Portland, ME, this September. The North is the sixth studio album from the Canadian band already familiar to U.S. teens and general denizens of pop culture: the group’s songs have been featured on popular nighttime soaps – from The O.C. to its East Coast counterpart, Gossip Girl – as well as in the trailer for the recent dramedy, Like Crazy.

Toward the end of the Northerners’ tour, they’ll pair up with rock band Metric as the group’s opening act. We’ve got all the solo and collaborative dates below, as well as ticketing info on how to score the best deals for seeing Stars.
