The virtual group Gorillaz is hitting the road for a week in North America before its Demon Dayz Festival in Los Angeles.

The first date of The Now Now Tour is Oct. 8 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto with The Internet. The tour moves through Montreal, Philly, New York, Boston (with Little Dragon instead of The Internet) and Chicago before wrapping Oct. 20 with the group’s own festival in the City Of Angels.

American Express cardholders get a presale June 1 at 10 a.m. local time in North America and June 4 at 12 p.m. local time in Canada. The general onsale is June 8 at 10 a.m. PST.

The group is promoting songs off its new album, The Now Now, which is to be released June 29. A music video for the single “Humility” is available now.

Gorillaz have tons of festival plays lined up in the summer, the next of which is Rock Im Park, today in Nuremberg, Germany.

Gorillaz took a large amount of time off after 2010, but made a proper return to the touring circuit in 2017. The group’s largest report so far this year was at Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile, March 20, with 14,706 tickets sold for a gross of nearly $1.4 million.
