New Orleans funk-soul group Tank and the Bangas and bounce rap pioneer Big Freedia announced a co-headlining North American tour. The joint trek, featuring support from jazz-funk outfit Naughty Professor, launches October 20th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and concludes November 9th in Berkley, California.

Tickets are on sale now via Tank and the Bangas’ official website. The band also have standalone dates scheduled throughout the summer and fall; their next date is Wednesday, August 22nd in Morrison, Colorado.

Tank and the Bangas broke out with their 2017 single “Quick,” which won NPR’s Tiny Desk contest, and their recently issued “Smoke.Netflix.Chill.” They are currently working on a follow-up to their 2013 debut LP, Think Tank.

The quintet spoke to Rolling Stone about their unique fusion of funk, gospel, spoken-word, hip-hop and soul. “I kinda feel like we take church on the road,” said frontwoman Tarriona “Tank” Ball of the band’s style.

Big Freedia recently appeared on Drake’s single “Nice for What” and released her Third Ward Bounce EP.
