Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys performs on stage at Leeds Festival at Bramham Park on Aug. 24, 2014 in Leeds, United Kingdom. 

It’s been almost five years since Arctic Monkeys released AM, the riff-rocking fifth album that completed their transition from teenaged punks to seasoned rock ‘n’ roll veterans. They’ve promised a new one this year, and now they’ve affirmed that notion with a string of North American tour dates set for spring and summer.

UPDATE: More dates have been added as of April 2018. See the updated itinerary below.

A standalone performance at LA’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery in May will be followed by a series of three-show runs in the South (Raleigh, Nashville, Atlanta), East Coast (New York, Boston, DC), and Midwest (Pittsburgh, Detroit, Toronto). Tickets go on sale March 16.

Last week the Monkeys announced a run of European dates, their first gigs since 2014.
