If reputation is king in hip-hop, Atmosphere isn’t about to abdicate. Known for being one of the hardest-touring acts around, Ant and Slug are once again hitting the road for a full lineup of North American shows.

The fall dates come after the band’s Australia and New Zealand concerts, which compounded Atmosphere’s already festival-heavy schedule – including stops at Summerfest, Forecastle, and Camp Bisco. Trying to find a balance between touring and recording has been a secondary concern of the group’s, whose last album, The Family Sign, was released a full year ago.

Tickets won’t be made available until July 20th, but below you’ll find the complete list of September tour dates. Don’t worry if you can’t make any of the confirmed shows – chances are, you won’t have to wait long for Atmosphere to uphold their title as Kings of the Road.
