On the heels of announcing their new album “The Suburbs,” Arcade Fire have gone further to reveal their first headlining U.S. tour dates in three years.

The seven-piece, Montreal-based band will head to Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Washington, D.C. (OK, Columbia, Md.), Nashville and Atlanta in early August; they’re already scheduled for a Chicago gig on Aug. 11 for Lollapalooza.

Spoon will be opening the New York (at Madison Square Garden, no less), D.C., Atlanta and Philly dates — they’ll be supporting their own recent album, “Transference.”

Arcade Fire also announced a pair of last-minute shows at the Theater Granada in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

For each ticket sold, the band is donating $1 to their longtime non-profit of choice, Partners in Health. Further dates are expected to be announced.
