The recently reunited Nickel Creek is set to play Chattanooga on its new tour.

The band is scheduled at Track 29 on April 21, according to the band's web page. Tickets, $39 apiece, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday on track29.co.

Composed of mandolinist Chris Thile, fiddle player Sara Watkins and guitarist Sean Watkins - all three sing - the band went on indefinite hiatus in 2007 at the end of their "Farewell (For Now) Tour." They're back with a new album, "A Dotted Line," due for release on April 1.

Between 2001 and 2005, Nickel Creek was nominated for five Grammys in the Folk category. They won Best Contemporary Folk Album in 2003 for the album "This Side."
