Reverb-heavy shoegazers Asobi Seksu may have stripped down their densely textured dream pop sound for the group's recent acoustic offering, entitled ReWolf, but they're apparently not holding anything back in regards to touring in support of the release. The duo, consisting of guitarist James Hanna and keyboardist Yuki Chikudate, who both share vocal duties, have announced a rather sizable North American trek in promotion of ReWolf. Check after the jump for a city near you!

Originally called Sportfuck, the duo began recording together in 2001, releasing one self-titled EP before changing their name to Asobi Seksu. The group have since recorded three full-length albums, not including the acoustic ReWolf, to mixed reviews, and their songs have been featured on a number of films and television shows, including The L Word and Ugly Betty.
