Rising alternative rock trio Wallows has revealed dates for their 2020 North American headlining tour. The LA-based group will kick off on Feb. 13 at Iron City in Birmingham, Ala. and runs for an additional 14 dates.

Wallows will play throughout the U.S. and Canada with stops in New Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa, Baltimore, Montreal and more. Shows will close out on March 2 at Fete Ballroom in Providence, R.I. They’ll be joined by special guest Penelope Isles for the newly announced dates.

Prior to their 2020 dates, the band is also set to perform at Tropicalia festival in Pico Rivera, Calif. on Nov. 10, as well as two dates in London supporting Vampire Weekend at Alexandra Palace on Nov. 13 & 14. On Nov. 15 they will also perform their own headlining show in Cologne, Germany and wrap up with another Vampire Weekend support date at Zenith in Paris on Nov. 16.

Today (Sept. 30) the band has also released an aminated video for single “Treacherous Doctor” off their debut album Nothing Happens. The imaginative video, created stop motion animation using felt cutouts, was produced by the inventive studio dreambear and directed and animated by Lawrence Becker. Check out the video below.

"“The ‘Treacherous Doctor’ video concept originally started with us discussing our dreams and trying to incorporate them into the video in a unique, creative visual way," Wallows said in a statement to Billboard. "Lawrence and the Dreambear team really made this feel like one big trippy step into our minds.”
