Heavy metal monarch King Diamond has ruled over lovers of facepaint and the occult for over 40 years at this point and it looks like he’s gunning to be the Elizabeth II of the hard rock world, since he’s showed no signs of slowing. The metal mainstay just announced a new tour this fall and an album coming in 2020.

The tour will come ahead of the announced album The Institute. Starting in Dallas at the Bomb Factory on November 2, the Danish rocker will work his way across North America in just over a month. The trek includes stops at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, Atlanta’s Tabernacle and Los Angeles’ Wiltern. Canadian fans will get two chances to see Diamond (exempting a stop in Detroit). He’ll play Montreal’s M-Telus and Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth on his way to a close out show in Phoenix on December 4.

“For reasons unknown to you, it is clear that you have no way of making it to ‘The Institute’ on your own at this point,” he said in a statement. “Therefore, we will bring THE INSTITUTE to you. You don’t want to miss this special opportunity for treatment only we can give you. It could be for your own good, you know.”

Joining King Diamond on the road are Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats along with Idle Hands. Tickets to the tour are going on sale August 23; check below for the full tour schedule.
