Following their appearances at the debut The World Is a Vampire festival in Mexico City earlier this month, the Smashing Pumpkins and Interpol will reprise the run in North America in late summer. Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons will also perform on select dates, beginning Aug. 1 in Salt Lake City and concluding Sept. 9 just outside Indianapolis. Tickets go on sale on Friday (March 31).

Beforehand, the Pumpkins will stage The World Is a Vampire in Australia during 10 shows beginning April 15 in Wollongong, with Jane’s Addiction replacing Interpol. Billy Corgan and company will also release the third and final installment on their rock opera, ATUM, on May 5, with new single “Spellbinding” out now. The project is intended as follow-up of sorts to the group’s 1995 double LP, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

After three shows in Mexico next month, Interpol will head overseas for a U.K. and European tour wrapping in late July at Spain’s Low festival. The group is on the road in support of its seventh album, last year’s The Other Side of Make-Believe.
