Indie-rocker Kurt Vile and his backing band the Violators have a significant worldwide itinerary scheduled as they drum up support for Vile's just-released fifth solo set, "Wakin on a Pretty Daze."

The former guitarist for The War on Drugs will begin the first U.S. leg of the excursion with a May 5 appearance at the Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta and continue with a mix of theater, club and festival gigs. A round of European shows follows, after which Vile and crew will return stateside for a second round of shows that gets underway June 29 in New York City and pushes into mid-August.

Vile unleashed "Wakin on a Pretty Daze," his fifth studio album, April 9 via Matador Records. The collection, produced by Vile and John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.), follows last year's "Smoke Ring for My Halo."
