The "Humanz Tour" is the band's first tour in seven years. You'll also be able to catch them at multiple festivals including Outside Lands in San Francisco and Meadows Music & Arts Festival in NY as well as numerous headline performances. See the full list of shows here. The "Humanz Tour" kicks off in Chicago on July 8th, and will hit a total of 17 total venues and festivals. It was previously reported that the band was planning a United States version of its Demon Dayz Festival in the Windy City, though today's press release offers no confirmation of this.

Leave it to Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, the masterminds behind Gorillaz, to elegantly craft their 2017 comeback as if they never left.

Gorillaz announced tour dates this morning, six years after the release of their last studio album, The Fall. Their first since 2010's Plastic Beach, the album will feature guests such as Grace Jones, Pusha T, De La Soul, Benjamin Clementine and more. Humanz will be released Friday, April 28. You'll have to wait until April 21 to buy a three-day ticket on iiipoints.com for $111 or VIP tickets for $245.
