British rock trio Muse has announced select dates, venues, and ticket on-sale dates for its upcoming spring North American tour. The headlining trek begins February 27th in Atlanta and criss-crosses the continent, including a stop at New York City’s legendary Madison Square Garden.

The band are touring in support of their fifth studio album The Resistance, which earned Muse their highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 3. The Resistance also notched 20 No. 1 debuts around the world. Muse’s current single “Uprising” has now topped Mediabase’s Alternative Rock chart for 14 consecutive weeks, breaking the record for number of consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Mediabase Alternative Rock chart for the 2009 calendar year.

The Resistance was produced by Muse and mixed by famed audio engineer Mark ‘Spike’ Stent. The band, which recently supported U2 on several American tour dates, and completed a sold-out tour of the U.K. and Europe, are performing a series of holiday radio shows this coming week and will perform on Saturday Night Live on December 19th.
