Pop-rock quartet steered by Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard just dropped a new batch of tour dates for early next year. We advise you to not wait on purchasing tickets as some of the stops are already sold out.

The news comes after the group released its debut EP Scout via Paradyse Records. The collective seems to be feeling extra generous this holiday season. In addition to the tour announcement, they shared an animated visual for the album track “Wasting Time.”

The clip was created by animator Martin MacPherson “We are really happy to make an animated video and happier still to have worked with Marty,” shared Wolfhard. “His style is very unique and I don’t think there is anything else out there that looks like this video. Marrying his images to our music is super cool.”

“Certain music has a way of evoking vivid memories from your past,” MacPherson said in a statement. “Good memories, bad memories, weird ones, too.”

“I wanted this video to depict a story of music bringing a civilization, frozen in time, back to life with all those beautiful, ugly and strange memories being revived, at least for the length of the song,” the director continued. “I think there can be a danger to living in the past too much however and at a certain point it’s time to move on.”

Calpurnia’s 18-show trek opens January 4 at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon and closes out in Atlanta at Shaky Knees Festival in May.

AT&T will serve as co-creator and exclusive presenting sponsor of the event, expanding its reach and providing greater access for those seeking to become future leaders.

“Now more than ever we need to own our culture,” Revolt chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs said in a press release. “At the Revolt Hip Hop Summit we will empower young people with sessions on the issues they care about. From entrepreneurship and economic empowerment to social justice, we’ll have the provocative conversations not happening anywhere else. With the support of AT&T, we will provide perspective on music and media that could only come from industry veterans committed to our future.”

The event will take place from July 25-27 in Atlanta and Oct. 24-26 in Los Angeles. In addition to showcasing performances from major and emerging artists, the Summit will be  an immersive experience in the world of Hip Hop and culture, offering young people real-life networking experience and helping them to develop and hone the crucial skills business owners need to grow their companies.

“One of the hardest parts of breaking into any field is building a network and making connections with people that can help inspire dreams into reality,” said AT&T SVP-advertising and creative services Valerie Vargas in a press release. “AT&T is a longstanding champion of mentorship across both business and entertainment and we hope the opportunities stemming from the Revolt Hip Hop Summit help young people find their place.”

Headliners and ticket sales for the Atlanta and LA events will be announced soon.
