It seems like Canada has been bringing us a lot of musical gems lately. First, Tegan and Sara, then the triumphant return of Alanis Morissette, and now: Yukon Blonde. The indie-rock band from Vancouver has announced they will tour North America this fall with Aussie band The Jezabels. The tour kicks off on September 4 in Saskatoon, SK, at Amigos, with two following dates in Ottawa and Toronto. Yukon Blonde will then make its way through the good ol’ United States, playing major cities in the West, Midwest and East Coast. The tour wraps up on October 31 in New Orleans, LA, at Circle Bar.

Yukon Blonde got their start in 2005 under the moniker “Alphababy.” In 2008, they changed their name and released an EP titled Everything in Everyway and in 2010, they released their debut self-titled album. After touring the US and Canada, and performing at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, a buzz began to form around the band. They were named one of the “10 Canadian bands destined to break in 2010″ by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
