Twelve dates are on tap through May 14 in Atlanta, to be followed by another 12 in Europe and Japan through mid-August.
The group will be out in support of its new album, "Make Believe," due May 10 via Geffen. First single "Beverly Hills" can be streamed from the band's official Web site. The mid-tempo track, with shades of 1994 hit "Say It Ain't So," is already garnering airplay at KROQ Los Angeles, WXRK New York and KNDD Seattle (which has played it more than 20 times since last Friday).
Billboard.com understands that "Make Believe" is still not fully mixed. The set will be the follow-up to 2002's "Maladroit," which debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and has sold just shy of 580,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
