The alternative hip-hop group, which also includes Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt, will make a one-month trek across the U.S. beginning Aug. 31.

Fresh off the release of Frank Ocean’s acclaimed debut album, his controversial hip-hop troupe Odd Future has announced a slew of fall tour dates, as well as two forthcoming releases.

The crew will kick off their Camp Flog Gnaw tour on Aug. 31 in Norfolk, VA, for a month-long trek across the U.S., taking their final bow on Sept. 30 in Los Angeles at what will become the Odd Future Carnival.  A venue for the LA event, which will feature rides, games and “special guests,” has not yet been announced.

The group also revealed release dates for several upcoming albums. Domo Genesis will release No Idols on Aug. 1, MellowHype (the duo of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain) will release Numbers on Oct. 2, Trash Talk will release 119 on Oct. 9 and Odd Future founder and leader Tyler, The Creator will release Wolf sometime in November, with an official date yet to be announced.

Odd Future released their latest collaborative album, The OF Tape Vol. 2, on March 20, peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. This week, Ocean’s highly anticipated Channel Orange debuted at No. 2 on the same chart.
