Gorillaz to perform at Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field

Gorillaz have announced a North American tour, their first since the promotional run behind 2010's Plastic Beach.

The band will kick off their reunion tour in Chicago this July, then hit a variety of summer festivals and major venues across the states through mid-October.

Gorillaz, the alt-rock supergroup consisting of animated characters voiced by blood-and-flesh musicians, is the first band to be announced for this year's Life is attractive festival, which will take place September 22-24 in downtown Las Vegas. 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). And in 17 years, the virtual band has never set foot in Florida. A fifth single from the album, "Let Me Out", was released on April 6 and features guest vocals from rapper Pusha T and gospel-soul legend Mavis Staples.
