Electronic rock duo Phantogram is getting ready to hit the road for a run of spring tour dates in North America and Europe. The first leg of the trek kicks off on Feb. 25 at The Republik in Honolulu and wraps March 17 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, at which point the group heads overseas for a 10-day sprint beginning in Bucharest, Romania, on March 30 and ending in St. Petersburg, Russia, on April 8. They return stateside for a run of festival dates, including Coachella (April 14 & 21), Middlelands, Sasquatch! and Governor’s Ball, as well as previously announced appearances at Firefly, Sloss Fest, Forecastle and Lollapalooza Berlin. The full itinerary is detailed below.

Founded in 2007 by singer-keyboardist Sarah Barthel and guitarist Josh Carter, Phantogram recently released its third studio album—it’s titled Three in case there was any confusion—which peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 when it was released in October. “This record is about heartbreak,” Barthel told the magazine upon the album’s release. “The best way to see it is like a beautiful car crash, that for whatever reason makes you slow down and look.”

Songs like the lead single “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” echo that motif, depicting a sense of ennui fueled by repetition—the rituals of addiction, dead-end relationships and stagnating pop culture. “It also taps into this idea of wanting to feel something,” she told Pitchfork. “Basically, wanting to feel something strong and doing whatever it takes to feel it again, because you know it feels good and you miss it.”

Last month, Phantogram applied its signature dark electro stylings to a cover of another similarly minded group, Radiohead, performing the In Rainbows cut “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” during an appearance on Triple J’s Like a Version in Sydney, Australia.
