    Fresh off their two headlining Coachella performances, Tame Impala have announced a new round of North American tour dates for the summer.

    This latest trek officially commences July 26th at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage. Mastermind Kevin Parker will then take his psych rock project to New York’s Madison Square Garden, The Mann Center in Philadelphia, and Washington, DC’s The Anthem at the end of August. Previously announced festival gigs like Lollapalooza, Detroit’s Mo Pop Festival, Norway’s Oya Festival, and Pukkelpop in Belgium are also part of the band’s itinerary.

    Update – August 6th: Tame Impala have announced fall tour dates.

    Tame Impala’s upcoming gigs follow the release of two singles, “Patience” and “Borderline”, and an appearance on Saturday Night Live last month. Despite a full live schedule, Parker recently said he’s under no rigid timeline to complete a new album, the much-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s Currents.


    “I like to think that the album is its own thing,” Parker explained. “I wouldn’t want in 20 years to be listening to an album I made now and think that I finished it for any deadline or any particular reason. It was finished because it was finished.”

    Consult the full schedule below. Tickets for the new gigs go on sale this Friday, April 26th via LiveNation, and you can find passes for all of Tame’s upcoming shows here. You can also prep for the concerts (while supporting your favorite independent music publication, Consequence of Sound) by grabbing the band’s past vinyl releases here.
