U.K. post-punk veterans The Monochrome Set will follow up a rare U.S. tour in 2019 with two legs of North American dates this year, playing 10 shows on the East Coast and Midwest in May, followed by eight more concerts along the West Coast and in Canada in September.

The U.S. tour, which follows dates this spring in the U.K., opens May 8 in Boston and runs through May 17 in Chicago. The band then returns to North America in the fall, beginning Sept. 25 in Toronto and wrapping up Oct. 4 in Los Angeles. See the group’s site for ticket information.

The Monochrome Set formed in 1978, and broke up in 1985 after the release of several albums. The group’s first reunion came in the 1990s, followed by a second in 2008. The current lineup features founding member and frontman Bid, plus bassist Andy Warren — who left Adam and the Ants in 1979 to join the Monochrome Set — and more recent additions John Paul Moran (keyboards) and Mike Urban (drums).

The band last year released its 15th studio album, Fabula Mendax.
