As new music looms, Arctic Monkeys on Monday shared a first round of North American tour dates.

The news follows their previously announced European shows as well as a number of festival appearances. The North American stops include Los Angeles, Nashville, Raleigh, Atlanta, Boston, Detroit and Toronto. It's worth noting, Chicago isn't on this first round of dates, while there's a comfortable opening during the weekend of Lollapalooza.

Tickets for the North American shows go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. local time.

As we have previously mentioned, Arctic Monkeys are expected to release a new album this year. And the growing tour schedule suggests that record, one of Variance's 45 Albums to Watch for in 2018, is definitely coming very soon.

See the new dates below.
