They also shared three other songs from the album when it was announced: "Ascension" (featuring Vince Staples), "We Got the Power" (featuring Savages' Jehnny Beth), and "Andromeda" (featuring D.R.A.M.). The tour is set to wrap up in October in Miami. Now the band has announced a North American tour. The tour will feature prominent performances with appearances at music festivals such as Outside Lands in San Francisco, Meadows in New York, Life is handsome in Las Vegas, and III Points in Miami.

Gorillaz will also make stops in Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia and Quebec. Those who buy tickets after the album's release date, will have instructions emailed to them 7-10 days after purchase. The South Florida festival is coming up on its fifth year as a leader for the music, arts, and technology scene in Miami.
