After three years, indie-rock band Florence and The Machine have revealed details of their forthcoming album along with a North American headlining tour later this year.
Preceding the tour, the group will hit a handful of festivals throughout the summer, including Poland’s Orange Warsaw Festival, Spain’s Bibao BBK Live, and Melt! Festival in Denmark. The 23-date trek is set to kick-off in Lake Tahoe, Nevada on August 9, and will include more festivals like Motreal’s Osheaga Festival, Grandoozy Festival in Denver, and Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas. Additionally, they will play large arenas like the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut before wrapping up in Minneapolis on October 20.
Tour dates have already been announced across the UK last week. They will commence the UK leg of the tour on November 15 in Leeds, England, and make stops in Birmingham, Glasgow, London, Manchester, and Brighton before wrapping up in Cardiff on November 26.
Just before their North American tour begins, the group will drop their fourth studio album, High as Hope, on June 29. So far, singles “Hunger” and “Sky Full of Song” have been released, successfully landing among some of their greatest hits like “You’ve Got The Love,” “Shake It Out,” and their 2009 breakout track, “Dog Days Are Over.”
Fronted by Florence Welch, the band will be joined by a variety of supporting acts throughout the tour, including St. Vincent and Lizzo in Vancouver, Oregon and Utah, along with Perfume Genius, Kamasi Washington, Grizzly Bear, Beth Ditto, Wet, and Billie Eilish on other dates.
The group opened for The Rolling Stones last weekend and performed “Hunger” on the season finale of The Voice as well as The Tonight Show. Check out their full list of upcoming dates below.
