Self-proclaimed geek-rocker Jonathan Coulton has planned a spring club and theater outing in support of his latest release, "Artificial Heart."

The Brooklyn-based former computer programmer is preparing for the tour's June 1 launch in Boston, followed by another dozen performances that span the nation. The late spring trek includes two Canadian stops: June 6 in Toronto and July 23 in Vancouver.

Coulton released "Artificial Heart," his 10th studio set, in September. The 18-track effort, which was produced by They Might Be Giants' John Flansburgh, topped Billboard's Heatseekers chart and at No. 16 on the magazine's Alternative Albums chart.
