Arcade Fire wasted no time planning a return visit to Southern California.

The Montreal band, which headlined the final night of each weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, has announced two new L.A.-area dates this summer.

The band will play two nights at the Forum in Inglewood on Aug. 1-2 followed by a San Diego date Aug. 5.

Tickets go on a local and Facebook pre-sale April 24 and are available to the general public April 25. Tickets will also be on sale at the band's website.

Arcade Fire's headlining set was well received at Coachella, drawing large and diverse crowds. After the first weekend of the festival, the Los Angeles Times said the band "closed out the festival with a set drawing from the downtown disco of its latest album 'Reflektor'...

"It was a nice reminder that dance music almost always sounds better onstage when it's coming from a big band, immaculately mixed. Older cuts like 'Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)' and 'Rebellion (Lies)' benefited from the new interest in floor-filling -- also seen in a Debbie Harry cameo on the band's cover of Blondie's 'Heart of Glass'."
