It’s a surprise of Gorillaz magnitude. The Damon Albarn-fronted group have announced their first North American tour in seven years, and the trek kicks off in July.

Gorillaz will be on the road to support their upcoming album, Humanz, which arrives in a few weeks. The outing will set off July 8 in Chicago and run through a mid-October stop at III Points Festival in Miami, Florida. The tour clocks in at 17 dates. Find the tour dates below.

Aside from the headlining performances, Gorillaz also have a handful of festival stops, including the aforementioned Ill Points Festival in Miama, as well as Outside Lands in San Francisco and New York's Meadows Music & Arts Fest.

Tickets for the newly-announced shows go on sale this Friday (April 21) at Gorillaz.com.

Humanzwill hit all the usual sales outlets April 28.
