Post-dubstep musician James Blake has added a North American leg to his worldwide run behind his April release, "Overgrown."

The 24-year-old London native will first perform in Europe, Japan and Australia before kicking off the North American leg Oct. 22 in Los Angeles. The 21-city domestic trek, which includes two-night stands in Washington, D.C. (11/2-3) and New York City (11/6-7), finishes up Nov. 21 in Portland, OR.

Blake unveiled his sophomore set, "Overgrown," early last month (4/8) via the musician's own Atlas Records. The effort, which features guests like producer Brian Eno and rapper/producer RZA, peaked at No. 32 on The Billboard 200 and the top of the magazine's Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
