One week after announcing their new album, HUMANZ, and its star-studded guest list, the Gorillaz have confirmed their first North American show in seven years.

The virtual four-piece—created by Blur musician Damon Albarn and visual artist Jamie Hewlett—will perform at the Le Festival d’été de Québec, an annual 11-day music festival in downtown Quebec City, on July 15.

There's no word on if the upcoming album's featured guests will join the band in Canada—that's Pusha T, Vince Staples, D.R.A.M., De La Soul, Danny Brown, Grace Jones, Popcaan, Kelela, Kali Uchis, Anthony Hamilton, Kilo Kish, Mavis Staples and others—but many (if not all) have been confirmed to take part in the Gorillaz's very own Demon Dayz Music Festival which goes down in Margate, England at the Dreamland amusement park on June 10.

For those that can't make it, the concert will be live-streamed on Redbull.tv.
