Grammy winning country star Sturgill Simpson has announced a slate of intimate shows to benefit the Special Forces Foundation. The six-date trek kicks off Sunday at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles and will follow the release of Simpson’s latest album, Sound & Fury,  out Friday on Elektra Records.

Sound & Fury will be the Kentucky-born singer’s fourh studio album and work as a companion piece to an anime film of the same name he created on with Takashi Okazaki and Junpei Mizusaki. Each song will accompany a different segment of the movie. The film is also due out on Friday via Netflix.

Simpson will go on to play Terrapin Crossroads and The Independent in California, before heading to the East Coast to play Music Hall of Williamsburg in New York, Black Cat in Washington, D.C. and Stone Pony in New Jersey.

The tiny venue tour will see all proceeds donated to the Special Forces Foundation non-profit, which provides immediate and ongoing support to the Special Forces community and their families.

These six North American dates are the only stops Simpson currently has scheduled for 2019. In 2020, he is set to hit nine cities across Europe and the U.K. beginning Jan. 21. According to an interview Simpson did with the New York Times, he plans to bring the tour back to the U.S. with roughly 40 dates next year.

Tickets for the intimate dates go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m. local time. Check below for a full list of dates.
