Alt-rock outfit The Breeders return to the tour trail for the first time since 1994 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their iconic sophomore set, "Last Splash."

The quartet, comprised of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson, will begin the celebratory trek, aptly titled the "LSXX Anniversary World Tour," with a sold-out preview gig March 29 in Brooklyn, NY. Violinist Carrie Bradley will also join the band for the worldwide road trip.

The official run, which will feature a performance of 1993's "Last Splash" in its entirety, will get underway May 3 in Pittsburgh, PA, followed by club and theater shows in eight major markets, including a May 11 performance in Toronto.

More dates will be announced soon, according to a press release, and ticketing information for all stops is available at the band's website.

The Breeders are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their sophomore album, "Last Splash," which surfaced in 1993 and marked their most successful album to date. That collection, which peaked at No. 33 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, earned platinum certification within a year's time.

On April 23, The Breeders will release "LSXX," a deluxe anniversary edition of the record.
