Acclaimed Chicago instrumental outfit Tortoise has finalized the North American portion of its tour in support of "Standards," the group's fourth Thrill Jockey album. The trek begins May 11 in Cleveland and wraps June 19 and 20 in the group's hometown; the European portion of the trek hits Milan tonight (March 26) and will wrap April 30 in Eindhoven, Holland.

Thrill Jockey labelmate Nobukazu Takemura, whose latest album "Hoshi No Koe" hits stores tomorrow (March 27), will support on all dates. In addition to Takemura, a number of notable acts will join the bills at various points, including German duo Mouse On Mars and celebrated U.K. electronica outfit Autechre. The latter pairing comes as part of the second annual Detroit Electronic Music Festival, set for May 26-28.

As previously reported, Tortoise is serving as the musical "curators" of the All Tomorrow's Parties festival, set for April 6-8 in Camber Sands, U.K. The sold-out event will feature the first live appearance in more than eight years from seminal New York rock act Television, as well as performances by the Sea & Cake, Boards Of Canada, Calexico, ESG, Lambchop, the Ex, and Yo La Tengo, among others.

"Standards" earned Tortoise is first-ever appearance on The Billboard 200 last month by debuting at No. 200. The set also opened at No. 10 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart.
