KONGOS will expand their summer North American tour into the fall in support of their forthcoming album, Egomaniac, which will be released on June 10.
The fall dates launch just after the group plays the Life is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas which takes place September 23 through 25. The group will hit many major cities before wrapping at The Crescent Ballroom Outdoors in Arizona for Dia De Los KONGOS. The Joy Formidable will support the trek.
KONGOS is also set to appear on NBC’s Today show June 15.
Egomaniac, KONGOS’ third album, will be released June 10. It is the follow-up to the South Africa-born band’s breakthrough sophomore record, 2012’s Lunatic.
A special artist pre-sale goes live on June 7 at 10 a.m. local time. At the same time, fans who preordered Egomaniacmay also buy tickets before the general on-sale date at Kongos.com.
