The Mountain Goats have announced the first set of dates for their 2011 U.S. Tour, including a stop in Boston. The indie rockers will perform at the Paradise Rock Club on Friday, April 1. Tickets for the show, which are $22, are now on sale through Ticketmaster and at the venue’s box office.

The Mountain Goats are touring in support of their forthcoming album titled All Eternal Decks. The album which is set to be released on March 29 is their first since 2009’s The Life of the World to Come and their first with Merge Records. According to singer/songwriter John Darnielle the album features songs that, “cluster around themes of hidden things and the dread that hidden things inspire but also the excitement, the attraction, the magnetic draw that scary unknown hidden things exert.”

Opening the show in Boston will be North Carolina based Megafun.
