Squeeze have announced dates for a fall tour. The outing kicks off in September and will see the band on the road in the U.S. for the first time in over four years.

The group will be supporting their latest album Cradle to the Grave, which was released back in October. The effort is their first since 1998 to feature all new music.

The British band is known for their pop hits “Tempted,” “Pulling Mussels (From The Shell),” and “Black Coffee in Bed.” They split in 1998 and reformed in 2007 after what guitarist and vocalist Glenn Tilbrook said, “was only planned as a short reunion.” He added, “Things went so well, here we are nine years later.”

Guitarist and vocalist Chris Difford added, “We’ve grown up a lot in the last few years, musically. For the first five years back together, we were saying ‘this is where we came from’. Now, this is where we are. We still love and own our past, but as musicians we needed to grow.”

The 19-date tour kicks off on September 21 in Scottsdale, Arizona and wraps October 17 in Boston. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 20. Complete tour dates are below, for more info click here.
