The hard-touring band, which blends live instrumentation with laptop grooves, will launch its latest trek April 6 in Santa Ana, Calif. They’ll head through Arizona and Texas to the South, winding their way up the East Coast by late April.

STS9 looks to head home after a May 6 Detroit gig, but the group will be back onstage in June at the two-day Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, Calif., as well as the Wakarusa Music Festival in Lawrence, Kan.

The band released a new album, ARTiFACT, last year, but STS9 fans know studio recordings are only the tip of the iceberg. The group offers live downloads, including dozens of full concerts from its recent winter tour, on its official Web site,
