R.E.M. will tour North America this May and June in support of “Accelerate,” due for release on Warner Bros. Records on April 1. The band will be joined by support acts Modest Mouse and The National.

R.E.M. will also headline the Langerado Music Festival on March 8 at the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation in South Florida and perform at Stubb’s Bar-B-Que on March 12 during the annual South-by-Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX.
“Accelerate,” R.E.M.’s 14th studio album, was recorded in Vancouver, BC, Dublin, Ireland and Athens, GA last spring with Grammy Award-winning producer Jacknife Lee, who is noted for his work with U2 (“How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb”), as well as Snow Patrol, Bloc Party and Kasabian. Last October, the band released a live CD/DVD, the first ever of their 27-year career, entitled “R.E.M. Live.”
