For the first time in five years, indie band Dirty Projectors have announced a new world tour, in support of their 2017 self-titled record, running from May through August of this year.

The tour kicks off May 11 in Arcosanti, Arizona, and will cross the country and parts of Canada until June 30 in Houston, Texas. In late July, the tour will pick up again in Japan and make stops in Germany, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, and the UK, wrapping up on August 22 in London.

Frontman Dave Longstreth will be joined this tour by bassist Nat Baldwin and drummer Mike Johnson, both previous members of Dirty Projectors’s tour. Keyboardist Kristin Slipp, guitarist Maia Friedman and percussionist Felicia Douglass are new editions that will jump on the bandwagon, following Amber Coffman’s departure.

Since the release of their self-titled record, the band has only released Cool Your Heart (Remixes.) However, on the band’s Instagram account, a video was shared, featuring a snippet of some potential music. It seems they’re keeping fans on their toes before the tour begins.
