Indie folk-rockers Bon Iver will extend their in-progress spring run into the summer as they continue touring behind last summer's "Bon Iver, Bon Iver."

The Wisconsin-based outfit, helmed by singer/songwriter Justin Vernon, returns to the stage April 12 in Las Vegas. Since last check, 13 North American stops have been tacked onto the itinerary, beginning with a May 21 concert in Edmonton, Alberta. After the domestic outing concludes with a June 10 appearance at Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, TN, the group will head across the pond for an 18-city European theater and festival trek.

"Bon Iver, Bon Iver," the outfit's second studio album, hit retailers last June via Jagjaguwar. The effort, which followed 2008's "For Emma, Forever Ago," debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Alternative Albums, Independent Albums and Rock Albums charts.
