The countdown is on until the release of the new album from the English industrial rocker. Thanks to a very successful PledgeMusic campaign, which was funded at 249 percent, Savage is due out Aug. 11. The project is the follow-up to 2013’s Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind).

“An album takes a long time to make, and it’s a process full of emotional challenges and crisis, so it’s always a mixture of relief and dread when they’re finished,” Numan told The VPME.

“Relief that it’s done, and dread that it’s done, with no way of improving it. Taking the new songs out on stage is always fun though. New songs in a live set are like breaths of fresh air after a long stint in a dark, sweaty room. Seeing how the fans react, seeing how the band reacts for that matter, it’s one of the most exciting parts of what we do. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Following a tour through the U.K. and a handful of gigs in Europe, the North American Savage Tour begins Nov. 15 at Observatory North Park in San Diego.

Other cities expecting visits from Numan include San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Brooklyn and Dallas. The last stop is The Mohawk in Austin, Texas, Dec. 16.

The Canadian portion of the routing includes Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto. Check out the schedule on Gary Numan‘s artist page.

Tickets go on sale to the public June 30.
