Alt-rock crew Incubus has announced plans for a summer amphitheater tour to end the group’s brief hiatus. The outing kicks off July 9 at the Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre in San Diego, CA, and is currently scheduled to close August 25 at the Arena in Phoenix, AZ.

The 28-city trek will hit markets from coast to coast across the U.S. and Canada. Highlights for the current itinerary are a July 13 concert at Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, CA, a July 21 performance at Chart One Pavilion in Chicago, IL, an August 4-5 stand at Radio City Music Hall in New York, NY, and an August 19 gig at Austin Music Hall in Austin, TX.

One date is booked north of the border on July 30 at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, ON. More concerts are expected to be added in the coming weeks, bringing the tour to more than 30 cities nationwide.

Incubus is touring in support of the upcoming compilations album “Monuments and Melodies,” which is slated for a June 16 release. The two-disc set features greatest hits and rarities from the group, as well as new tracks “Black Heart Inertia” and “Midnight Swim,” and a cover of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy.”

In addition to the compilation album, Incubus is reportedly working on a new studio album to follow 2006’s “Light Grenades,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The band’s next single, “Black Heart Inertia,” will be released to the radio on April 16.
