Only a week after releasing its latest single, BorderlineTame Impala has announced five North American concert dates set to take place this summer.

On July 26, the mini-tour will kick off in Toronto before hitting Minneapolis, Minn., New York City, Philadelphia, Pa., and Washington, D.C.

Not only will the Australian psych-rockers hit Toronto, but they’re already scheduled for a headlining slot at this year’s Osheaga festival in Montreal as well as various other American music festivals throughout the summer.

With a brand-new single and an upcoming tour in the works, founding member and Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker is soon expected to reveal details about an upcoming record — the first in four years.

The critically acclaimed Currents (2015) was Tame Impala’s last release and made them a household name across the globe.

As of this writing, Parker has not revealed any details regarding Tame Impala’s next album.

The release of Borderline comes as a treat to many dedicated fans, who have waited years to hear new music from Tame Impala. Aside from Patience, which was released only a month ago, it’s the longest fans have ever had to wait for a Tame Impala release.

An announcement regarding a brand-new album is expected to follow in the next couple of weeks.

Since the inception of Tame Impala in 2007, Parker, 33, has toured with a multitude of talented musicians. This summer, he will be joined by longstanding touring musicians: Jay Watson, Dominic Simper, Julien Barbagallo and Cam Avery.

Aside from its short North American tour, Tame Impala will embark on a series of tour dates throughout Europe, including various festival performances.
