Globally-influenced indie rockers Beirut, led by New Mexico native Zach Condon, will tour the U.S. around the release of their third studio album, The Rip Tide, which hits stores Aug. 30.

The band, which played a breakout performance earlier this month at Brooklyn’s Northside Festival, will make festival stops at Montreal’s Osheaga, Chicago’s Lollapalooza, and San Francisco’s Outside Lands, among the announced itinerary.

Beirut is teasing The Rip Tide with the song “East Harlem,” which you can hear below. The album will be Condon’s first on his own imprint, Pompeii Records.
