Gorillaz have announced a short run of shows in the U.S., which will take place in September. Kaytranada, Lil Yachty, and Remi Wolf will support all dates. Per a statement, the trek will mark the group’s final run of U.S. dates in support of Cracker Island, the band’s most recent album featuring Stevie Nicks, Bad Bunny, Beck and more that arrived in February.

Dubbed “The Getaway Shows,” the band will perform at amphitheaters and stadiums in four cities: Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago, and Boston, during the dog days of summer. Per a statement, the shows will “find 2D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel on the run in the U.S., having packed into their van following Gorillaz’ recent back-to-back Coachella performances.”
