Texas rocker Alejandro Escovedo will take to the road later this week for a lengthy U.S. trek surrounding the June release of his 11th studio set, "Big Station."

The Austin-based musician takes to the stage tonight (4/10) for his usual hometown Tuesday night residency at the iconic Continental Club before setting out for a Thursday night (4/12) performance in Dallas. So far, the spring and summer journey ventures through 27 American cities through a July 17 festival appearance in Croton-on-Hudson, NY, followed by an 18-date European leg.

Escovedo is set to release "Big Station," his 11th studio album, June 5 via Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group. The 12-track set, which was produced by Chuck Visconti, includes tracks largely co-written by Chuck Prophet, according to a press release. The impending collection also holds Escovedo's first-ever Spanish recording, "Sabor a Mi," which was written and composed by the late Alvaro Carrillo.
