Alanis Morissette has revealed plans to embark on a fall tour in support of her forthcoming album, Havoc and Bright Lights. The Canadian rocker will hit Massachusetts for a performance at Boston’s House of Blues on Wednesday, October 17 as part of her “Guardian Angel” tour. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $49.50 and $65.

Havoc and Bright Lights, Morissette’s eighth studio release and follow-up to 2008’s Flavors of Entanglement, will hit stores on August 28. Recorded in Los Angeles with producers Joe Chiccarelli and Guy Sigsworth, the album will mark the songstress’ first release in four years. The video for lead single “Guardian”, which was shot in Berlin by acclaimed German director Baris Aladag, is streaming below.

“The songs from the last 17 years are blending together like great friends,” said Morissette in a press release announcing the tour. “Thankfully, there is a timelessness in their content and passion, for me! The show covers the gamut of every chord choice and every emotion I have ever felt. I am spent afterwards, happily so. I am thrilled to be able to play and tour with my family, blending my personal and artistic fulfillment into one sweaty, feisty, expressed, communal traveling circus! I look forward to connecting with everyone face to face, as well as through the many social networks of this exciting new climate.”
