Given how hard Montreal art-rock group BRAIDS is hitting the festival circuit this summer (North by Northeast, Osheaga, and Ottawa Blues Festival, to name a few), it's tough to believe that only a few short years ago, the dreampop quartet was opening for bands like Deerhunter and then retiring back to their dorm rooms.

Riding the momentum of an explosive year, the canucks have just announced a Canada-heavy North American tour kicking off this fall. Check out the tour schedule below and catch them when they come to your city!

Bonus: Peep BRAIDS playing "Plath Heart" off of their acclaimed debut LP, Native Speaker, in a paintball rink (yeah, you read that correctly).
