Paramore will be taking their stellar After Laugher album on the road in just a few months, as the band announced their 2018 North American summer tour.

Foster the People are the special guests for the trek and Paramore plan to reveal another surprise act in the coming weeks. The 25-date tour kicks off June 12 in St. Augustine, Fla., and hits cities like Toronto, Brooklyn, New Orleans and Los Angeles before wrapping up in Morrison, CO on July 24. Tickets go on sale via Live Nation beginning Friday, March 16 at 10 a.m. ET. But for those fans that can't wait until next week, pre-sale tickets are now available on Paramore's official website.

The tour is sure to be a joyride, thanks to Paramore's widely energetic live performance history (and it'll also be fun to see what hair color Hayley Williams will chose). We can probably expect to hear singles from After Laughter like "Rose-Colored Boy," "Fake Happy," "Hard Times" and "Told You So." As for Foster the People? Along with their signature hit "Pumped Up Kicks," they'll jam out to songs from their third album Sacred Hearts Club. Check out the tour dates below (via Popcrush):
