of Montreal today announced the dates for their Fall 2016 US tour that will include three California dates in late October. The tour will be in support the group's recently announced, forthcoming album Innocence Reaches. That album, that features such tracks as "It's Different For Girls" (audio preview below), is scheduled to arrive in Amoeba on August 12th in CD and vinyl formats via the Athens, GA group's longtime label Polyvinyl. Last month the label released the group's double-A sided 7" single "Chinese Rocks" / "Either Way I Lose."  And last year Polyvinyl released of Montreal's Aureate Gloom (also in LP) in March. Then in April 2015, for Record Store Day, they unleashed the vinyl release of Snare Lustrous Doomings. Six months later in October they again released Snare Lustrous Doomings on CD and on LP formats in wider release numbers.

In
nocence Reaches will be the fourteenth album from the Kevin Barnes band of two full decades and can be filed under such categories as contemporary electronica, indie pop, and EDM. As for how the album differs from other ones by his group, said Barnes: "I got into this bubble of only being in some other time period. I came up picking apart the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and symphonic pieces. But last year, I was hearing Jack Ü, Chairlift, Arca, and others, thinking about low end and sound collage. It was an extra layer to geek out on." 

of Montreal's intense two month Fall tour, that was announced today, will begin Sept 2nd in the group's hometown at Athens, GA venue 40 Watt Club, and will ends on Halloween night, October 31st in Atlanta, GA at Terminal West. The three California dates of the tour will be October 22nd at The Kate Buchanan Room at Humbolt State University in Arcata, October 23rd in San Francisco at The Fillmore, and the following night, October 24th at The Regent in Los Angeles.
