On the heels of their latest album, Cooler Returns, Kiwi Jr. coolly announce their first series of live dates, kicking off with the River & Sky Festival in Sudbury, Ontario on July 17th.

Fall and Winter dates include support with TUNS, Surfer Blood, Tobin Sprout, Trace Mountains, and Nap Eyes, as well as a hometown Toronto headline show at the Horseshoe Tavern on Friday, October 15th.

Want a taste of what to expect at the band’s upcoming live shows? You can watch the group’s performance on famed Seattle radio station, KEXP, right here:

See below for a full list of dates.

Kiwi Jr. has partnered with cartoonist Dmitry Bondarenko on a 24-page booklet of illustrated lyrics, which is available at Bandcamp and on tour.

Jeremy Gaudet, Kiwi Jr singer/lyricist says, “To see all of the insanity of our lyrics represented visually is wild. There’s stuff I saw in here that surprised even me, and I wrote the damned thing.”

For more information on the Cooler Returns Comic, visit the group’s merch table or Bandcamp page.
