Garage-electronica band You Scream I Scream has signed on to open a string of shows for Seattle alt-rockers Presidents of the United States of America and Eternal Summers.

The Connecticut/Nantucket/New York rockers will join PUSA in April for concerts in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston and Asbury Park, N.J. The group last year released its latest album, “Zookeeper,” and it’s a quirky and propulsive set of songs that ought to fit right in with Presidents’ music. That band has released six studio albums since 1994, including a platinum-selling self-titled album in 1995 that included the hit single “Lump.”

You Scream leader Floyd Kellogg sees a certain symmetry in joining Presidents on tour. “PUSA I used to watch on MTV in the morning before I would go to middle school when I was young, so it’s definitely a gas having something musically come full-circle and to play with a band that I remember being impressionable on my young rock mind,” he says by e-mail.

Here’s You Scream I Scream’s itinerary with Presidents of the United States of America:

4/10 Philadelphia — Union Transfer
4/11 Boston — Paradise Rock Club
4/13 Asbury Park, NJ — The Stone Pony
4/16 Washington D.C. — 9:30 Club
