Los Angeles – British rock group Oasis has confirmed its first U.S. shows in three years, which will come in support of its as-yet-untitled new studio album.

The band will play Toronto (June 17), Detroit (June 18), Chicago (June 20), New York (June 22) and Philadelphia (June 25), with support from Australian rock outfit Jet. Tickets for all shows go on sale Feb. 12 via Ticketmaster.

The dates will be sandwiched between a run of European and U.K. performances, including previously announced visits to the German Hurricane and Southside festivals.

The new album, a follow-up to 2002’s “Heathen Chemistry,” is due May 16 internationally via Epic and late May or early June in North America.

According to guitarist Noel Gallagher, it will feature 12 songs written by all four current members – himself, singer Liam Gallagher, bassist Andy Bell and guitarist Gem Archer. Among the tracks slated for inclusion are “The Importance of Being Idle,” “Guess God Thinks I’m Able” and “Part of the Queue.”
