The Gorillaz will stop by New York City when the group kicks off its North American tour this summer for the first time in seven years.

The show is the part of the group's tour behind its forthcoming fifth album, "Humanz", due out April 28. Instructions will be sent via email shortly after ticket purchase. The trek commences July 8 in Chicago and wraps a mere 17 dates later, at Miami's III Points Festival.

Since 2000, Damon Albarn of Blur fame and illustrator Jamie Hewlett, best known for co-creating the comic book Tank Girl, have been shaping their own alternative rock/hip-hop/what-have-you act with Gorillaz. The cartoon crew detailed the album last month and released four new songs: "Andromeda" (featuring D.R.A.M.), "Saturn Barnz" (with Popcaan), "Ascension" (featuring Vince Staples) and "We Got the Power" (with Beth).

As it now stands, the group's only other Canadian date will happen on July 10 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Ticket-sale dates haven't been announced (presumably it will be this or next Friday morning; watch this post for more information), but an album-ticket bundle will be available.

July 13 - Philadelphia PA - Festival Pier at Penn's Landing +.

Everyone's favorite animated band is coming to Red Rocks.

9/30 - Seattle, WA, KeyArena at Seattle Center +.

October 5 - Los Angeles CA - The Forum +.
