Amid speculation surrounding their ninth studio album, Radiohead announced a string of headlining tour dates that stretch from May to October 2016. The dates include various headlining shows and festival appearances. A full list of tour dates can be seen below, although the band’s website also hints that more festival appearances will be announced in the future.

Despite the large number of shows on the band’s calendar, Radiohead only has four U.S. dates scheduled. The group will play two shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden on July 26 and 27 and two shows in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium on Aug. 4 and 8.

The tour will be Radiohead’s first live performances since 2012, when they played shows in support of 2011’s The King of Limbs.

Because their last two albums were released without promotion, many fans are expecting that the Oxfordshire, England-band may release their newest project as a surprise as well. Radiohead formed the company Dawn Chorus LLP in October, an action the group also took in advance of releasing King of Limbs and 2007’s In Rainbows (via Consequence of Sound). The speculation is further supported by a previously unseen piece of album art-esque artwork, which the band uploaded to its Facebook account on Monday.

Most recently, Radiohead released “Spectre” on its Soundcloud account last December. According to the page, the song was written for the James Bond movie of the same name, but was ultimately not used in the film.
