Vampire Weekend will promote their upcoming fourth LP, Father of the Bride, with a massive North American tour. The 35-date trek kicks off May 17th with a slot at Alabama’s Hangout Music Festival and launches in full on June 5th in Toronto, Ontario; after a month-plus break in July, the second leg begins August 16th in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and concludes October 8th in Denver, Colorado.

Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, February 8th at noon local time via Live Nation. Registration for a Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale is open through Sunday, February 3rd at noon ET; the sale will run from Tuesday, February 5th at 10 a.m. local time through Thursday, February 7th at 10 p.m. local time. Each online ticket purchased by U.S. residents will include a physical CD copy of Father of the Bride, which is tentatively due out in the spring.

Vampire Weekend have yet to detail the full track list for the long-awaited album, which follows 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City. The band recently previewed the 18-track record with two new songs, “Harmony Hall” and “2021,” and they plan to issue two additional sets of songs before the LP’s release date.

Father of the Bride, the group’s first since the departure of longtime multi-instrumentalist/producer Rostam Batmanglij, is their first to feature guest vocalists. “We’ve had three albums of the same voice over and over again,” singer Ezra Koenig told Rolling Stone. “I like the idea of opening up our world a little bit.”
