1990s alternative rock legends Garbage are releasing a 20th anniversary reissue of their 1998 sophomore album, Version 2.0, on June 22 via Stunvolume/[PIAS]. Now they have announced some U.S. tour dates in honor of the reissue. They go down this September and October and tickets go on sale this Friday, April 27, at 10 a.m. local time. Check out all the dates below, followed by “Lick the Pavement,” a B-side rarity from the reissue the band shared when the reissue was announced.

Version 2.0 has sold four million copies worldwide to date. The reissue includes a second disc of 10 B-sides. Garbage’s last album, Strange Little Birds, came out in 2016.

Garbage’s Shirley Manson had this to say about the issue in a previous press release: “Version 2:0 is in my opinion the quintessential garbage record. We are all very grateful to the millions of people who took it to their hearts at the time it was released and to those who continue to love on it still.”

The band’s Butch Vig had this to say: “Version 2.0 is the sound of a band growing up, evolving, and more than anything, gaining confidence. When we started recording, we made a conscious decision to not re-invent ourselves, but rather take everything we learned from our debut album and filter it through the new digital technology we were grappling with. Sonically, the album has moments of razor sharp clarity and soft beauty. Indeed, it’s possibly our best album.”
