Danish indie-rockers The Raveonettes have firmed up their worldwide tour behind the brand-new studio album, "Observator."

The pair -- guitarist/songwriter Sune Rose Wagner and singer/bassist Sharin Foo -- will kick off the North American portion of the fall roadwork with a Sept. 21 show in Portland, OR. The domestic itinerary currently includes 17 major market shows through an Oct. 12 performance in San Francisco, after which the duo will head back to Europe for several club and theater shows which extend into late February.

More tour dates will be announced soon, according to a press release.

The Raveonettes released "Observator," earlier this week (9/11) via Vice Records. The album, produced by Richard Gottehrer and recorded at Hollywood's Sunset Sound, follows last year's "Raven in the Grave."

The video for the lead single, "The Enemy," premiered yesterday (9/12) at NPR, where it's currently streaming.

"It's poetic and slightly unsettling at the same time," the pair explained to NPR about the video, which was directed by Australian Imogen Prado. "We wanted the images for 'The Enemy' to create a bit of a juxtaposition to the sweet, poppy quality of the song. Something more abstract. It's very exciting to work with young, up-and-coming artists like Imogen. We believe in her as an artist and look forward to following her career."
