Outkast joined the world of Twitter Monday morning, and to celebrate, the duo used the micro-blogging platform to announce their first world tour in over a decade.

Right off the top we have to give credit to Noisey for bringing this to our attention. Earlier this morning a new Twitter account was activated with the handle @OutKast. Not long after it went live, the account posted quotes from both Big Boi and Andre 3000, as well as the news that Outkast will be headlining 40 festivals worldwide in 2014. You can view the first tweets posted below:

This announcement has since been confirmed by Outkast’s official website, which was updated to include the following message shortly after the tweets were posted:

“Ingenious and iconic recording artists and performers, Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and André “3000” Benjamin today announced via Outkast’s social media platforms that their return to the stage celebrating their 20th anniversary will include festival dates around the world. After headlining performances at Coachella in April, the influential group will be the marquee act at over 40 festivals around the world throughout the Spring/Summer of 2014 (dates to be announced).

“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” said Big Boi. “Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!”

“And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap! I am thankful to have been a part of a group that allowed me to explore anything that came to mind and have fun doing it. Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast,” said André 3000.”
