Later this year, My Morning Jacket will embark on a big U.S. headlining tour, the esteemed band announced on Tuesday.

The news comes on the heels of the October release of the Jim James-fronted indie/rock/psychedelia band‘s latest record, a self-titled album that marked their first since 2015.

An attempt at achieving musical catharsis amid a world in tumult, My Morning Jacket was characterized like this by James in a statement:

“I hope this album brings people a lot of joy and relief, especially since we’ve all been cooped up for so long. I know that feeling you get from driving around blasting music you love, or even lying in bed and crying to the music you love. The fact that we’re able to be a part of people’s lives in that way is so magical to us, and it feels really good that we’re still around to keep doing that.”
