New York City pop-rockers Scissor Sisters have planned a North American summer outing in support of their forthcoming studio set, "Magic Hour."

Six weeks after a one-off hometown show May 6, the quintet will embark on the monthlong major-market excursion, beginning with a June 15 performance in Las Vegas and pushing through a two-night return July 6-7 at New York City's Terminal 5.

General onsales for the tour begin today (4/27).

Scissor Sisters will release "Magic Hour," the group's fourth full-length set, May 28 via Casablanca Records. The album, which follows 2010's chart-topping "Night Work," features special guests Azealia Banks, Pharrell Williams, Diplo, Calvin Harris and Alex Rihda, among others.

"It's really different from 'Night Work,'" frontman Jake Shears said in a press release. "That was almost a concept album. This one is a bit more of a grab-bag of music -- it's closest to our first record in terms of variety, and that board-game aspect where you're not quite sure where you're going to land next."

The collection's lead single, "Only The Horses," will be available via digital retailers beginning May 15. Fans can check out the song's official video, which is currently streaming at the band's website.
