Are you ready for some excitement? This spring/summer is bound to be a musically fulfilling time, as Mogwai, Leonard Cohen, Depeche Mode and Late of the Pier have all announced tour dates for the upcoming months.

Mogwai are the first to set sail, starting off their tour in Athens, Greece tomorrow night. The band will be touring throughout Europe, the U.S., and Australia, ending their three month tour at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Recently the Scottish band asked fans to sign a petition to protest laws that limited the volume at UK concerts, according to Pitchfork, so if you’re out at a Mogwai concert in the U.S. or Austrailia, be ready to have your eardrums rattled.

Leonard Cohen will be touring throughout April and May, making his first stop in Austin, Texas, after which the tour will continue throughout the U.S., ending on June 2 in Morrison Colorado. Cohen just recently played his first U.S. show in 15 years at NYC’s Beacon Theatre. The 74-year-old performer said, “It’s been a long time since I stood up on this stage in New York City. I was 60 years-old, just a kid with a crazy dream. Since then I’ve taken a lot of Prozac.”

In support of their soon-to-be released album, Sounds of the Universe, Depeche Mode will also be touring starting in July. The electro legend’s “Tour Of The Universe” will start off in Toronto on July 24, and will continue on for 21 more dates throughout North America.

Late of the Pier, the eclectic quartet from Nottingham, England, is playing a month of tour dates in the U.S. starting on March SXSW. The band will then be making their way throughout the greater U.S. regions, ending their tour on April 19, in Indio, California, where they will be performing at the Coachella Music Festival.
