Monkeys, get ready for heaven: Pixies have announced a whole new batch of North American tour dates for 2017.

In support of last year’s Head Carrier, frontman Frank Black, guitarist Joey Santiago, drummer David Lovering, and bassist Paz Lenchantin will trek across the country, dolling out everyone’s favorite ’80s college rock. They won’t be alone, either, as Public Access TV and Cymbals Eat Guitars will be in tow.

For this jaunt, the Massachusetts rockers will be palling around a brand new stage setup designed by longtime production manager Simon Foster and lighting designer Myles Mangino. According to a press release, “the design is simple and sleek and fashioned around special pods that house all of the lighting, positioned behind the band.” There will also be no setlist, meaning each night will be different.

Consult the full itinerary below, which includes a short residency of sorts in Boston.

Update — Tuesday, February 21st at 8:10 a.m. CT: The band has added a new leg of North American dates for September and October.
