The band will also play shows that were originally scheduled for 2020.

“We are excited to finally share our full tour itinerary for summer 2022,” the band said in a statement. “The last couple years have given us ample time for reflection and rejuvenation. Summer 2022 is a time for reunion. We look forward to gathering with friends, old and new. United in music and light, suspended in time. We hope you can join us.”
