Mac Miller has revealed plans for an expansive 38-city tour of North America this summer in support of his highly anticipated sophomore album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off. The Pittsburgh-based rapper will touch down in Boston as part of the “Space Migration” tour on Thursday, July 18 for a show at the House of Blues. He’ll be joined by guests Earl Sweatshirt, Chance The Rapper, Vince Staples and The Internet. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $26 and $45.

Watching Movies With The Sound Off is scheduled to hit stores on June 18. The album follows Miller’s record breaking 2011 debut album Blue Side Park, which debuted at at #1 on the Billboard 200, making it the first independently released debut to do so since 1995. Fans can get a taste of the new material with lead single “S.D.S.”, which is streaming below.

Watching Movies With The Sound Off is a very long title that everybody gets wrong, which is awesome,” said Miller in a press release. It was created inside of a sanctuary that exists in a different dimension. The only way you can get there is by running into a wall at full speed after eating an iced tea.”

Miller has continued to work on multiple musical side projects, including the recently released EP You under his alter-ego Larry Lovestein and the Velvet Revival. The EP topped iTunes’ Jazz Charts at #1.

Outside of music, Miller recently wrapped season one of his hit MTV2 reality show “mac Miller and The Most Dope Family”, which, after recording the highest debut for the network, will return for a second season chronicling his album release and tour.

Following the show in Boston, Miller will travel south to Rhode Island for a show at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence on Friday, July 19. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at noon through eTix for $27.50 and $33.50. The tour will also stop at The Dome in Wallingford, Connecticut on Wednesday, July 17.
