Citizen Cope is currently on tour in support of his sixth studio album Heroin and Helicopters and he has now announced an additional 28 dates for the tour. The newly announced dates will carry him from May 16 through July 13 where he'll wrap the tour up in Atlantic City.

Heroin and Helicopters released on March 1 via his own RainWater Recordings is even more prolific and philosophical than his previous releases. The new album touches on themes of today's current global affairs from religion and politics, culture, and wading the waters together through the darkness. The overall tone of the album is about having troubles with addiction and mankind's obsession with instant gratification.

The album title and themes were inspired by Carlos Santana when he advised the songwriter to "stay away from the two H’s," saying each has had fatalities in the music industry. Listen to "Justice" above.
