After finishing a tour that took him around North America and Europe this spring, Thundercat announced a slew of new headlining dates on Tuesday. The singer and accomplished bass player is performing in support of his recently released Drunk album, which featured contributions from Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell and Michael McDonald.

Thundercat’s latest schedule of gigs is dizzying. He starts the run on May 29th at the Movement Festival in Detroit, where he will be an outlier on a bill dominated by techno innovators. He then heads across the Atlantic for several shows in June, visits the West Coast of the U.S. in July and skips back overseas to London and Japan before returning to America for a traditional loop around the country in August, September and October. He finishes the tour with a few more European dates in November.

Tickets for most of the newly announced North American shows go on sale on Friday, May 19th at 10 a.m. local time. 

Thundercat put out Drunk in February. “I think one thing that playing an instrument has provided me is having a conversation, and have it not be contrived as shit,” he told Rolling Stone in February. “I’ve tried to communicate. But at the end of the day it’s still for you to understand something: understand that the world is bigger than you.”
