The run - which will include shows at Constellation Room in Santa Ana (April 13), The Independent in San Francisco (April 23) and a hometown show at Portland's Crystal Ballroom (April 28) - comes on the heels of the band's successful European outing, which included a sold-out show at London's Union Chapel.

In addition to the headline dates, thetrio of sisters will open for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in late May when the "Soul2Soul" world tour comes to arenas in the Pacific Northwest. Joseph will also perform at many 2017 festivals, including Coachella, Hangout, Bonnaroo and Forecastle. See below for itinerary.Tickets are available athttp://smarturl.it/josephtour.

The band is touring in support of its new album, I'm Alone, No You're Not (ATO Records), which spent two weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart and was voted as one of 2016's top albums by NPR listeners. Cumulative streams for the album's tracks now surpass 18 million on Spotify.

Lead single "White Flag" topped Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs radio airplay chart and is currently climbing at Alternative radio. It has more than 10 million streams on Spotify Streams for the Top 20 AAA hit "SOS (Overboard)" now exceed four million. View Joseph performing "White Flag" on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" HERE and on "Later...with Jools Holland" HERE. The band has also performed on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Conan," "CBS This Morning Saturday" and NPR's "Tiny Desk Concert." In 2016, Joseph toured with James Bay and Michael Kiwanuka and played numerous headline shows, including a sold-out night at New York City's Bowery Ballroom.

Reviewing a recent show, the Philly Voice said, "With the precision of master harmonizers, the [sisters] delivered rich vocals one song after another to an adoring World Café Live crowd. Super catchy 'SOS (Overboard)' was eaten up to its candy core by everyone in attendance as were the rest of the audio confections they served up."

"The members of Portland trio Joseph - sisters Natalie, Allison and Meegan Closner - blend their voices in the eerily close way that only siblings seem able to accomplish," said NPR, praising their mix of "swoony delicacy and punchy anthems." PAPER praised Joseph's "dark folk-pop that will make you cry (in the best, most cathartic way possible)." BUST observed, "Joseph has certainly arrived, and this is one sister act whose talent will stand the test of time."
