Tears for Fears is waking up from its dormancy: the rockers announced they are working on a new album, their first since 2004.

Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal are working in U.S. and U.K. studios to prepare their follow-up record to Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, the group announced Wednesday. It’ll be the second album made by Smith and Orzabal after reuniting; Smith briefly left Tears after 1989’s The Seeds of Love. Though they haven’t recorded new albums, the group has still been touring.

There’s more good news for Tears fans. The group has rescheduled previously postponed tour dates for this fall and will run through 15 American and Canadian cities. Tickets purchased for the original dates will be honored for the new dates or refunds will be available at point of purchase.
