Canadian folk outfit Great Lake Swimmers have announced a run of U.S. tour dates that will begin in Vermont at the end of April and bring the group down the eastern coast. The new dates build upon the already on-sale Canadian run (see below for the full list). The band will release their sixth album, A Forest Of Arms, on April 21, 2015.

As with past albums, Great Lake Swimmers recorded A Forest Of Arms in numerous untraditional locations over the span of several months, covering extensive new territory while remaining true to the group’s refined sound. One of those locations was the Tyendinaga Cavern and Caves in Ontario where they recorded a number of the acoustic guitar tracks for the album amid the haunting acoustics, stalactites, and circling bats. The band recently unveiled (via The Bluegrass Situation) a behind-the-scenes video of Tony Dekker performing the new track, “Don’t Leave Me Hanging” in the cave.
