The term "Canadian tour" gets thrown around a lot. Most bands claim to embark on one and only hit Toronto and Montreal, maybe a town or two in between. Some Canuck acts have made valient efforts as of late, with the Constantines and Jon-Rae and the River (and earlier the Cons and Weakerthans) heading from St. John's to Victoria. However popular duo the White Stripes have just about everyone beat. Their newly announced June Canadian tour not only spans two coasts, it does all three. The band's schedule features rare gigs in Whitehorse in the Yukon, Northwest Territories capital Yellowknife, and Nunavut's major population center Iqaluit. The band's visiting the usual places along the 49th as well.

Prior to the Canadian tour the band will be in Europe, and following it they're back on the road in the US. The band's new record Icky Thump is set for release on June 18th via a one-off deal with the Warner Music Group.
